Further to last months discussion regarding a club station it was decided
to test the feasibility of a club station by putting it to the membership. A survey, to
determine the level of interest, is to be included in the next Bulletin and on the KWARC
website. Suggestions were made regarding survey questions, including: "Would you
assist in setting up and maintaining station equipment?" It was thought that there
would have to be at least 10 to 12 people to justify a permanent station.

Tedd and insurance policy

a list of equipment he had received from Tedd VA3TJD. While reviewing the clubs
insurance policy it was noted that the Manneheim site, which houses most of the
