Good afternoon all,
I am with Post 223 in Sykesville, MD and have been trying to setup a
station/club at our post. I seem to be running into stumbling blocks
with getting a place in our post to even store equipment let alone
set up a permenant station. I keep hearing things like we dont have room
and we dont want you guys disrupting our hall rental etc. It is getting
to be annoying to say the least.
They dont realize that many or the Post 223 hams have ties to the local
county EOC as well as the Maryland state EOC through the state Army MARS group. Several of us also have CERT certifications. This same group provided the largest part of the radio operators at the state level during last months hurricane Irene and the following week for all of the flooding that ensued.
Anyone else encountered this kind of problem? Please drop me a line here.
