Meeting on Jan 8th 2011

We had a great meeting on Saturday January 8th at the Herriman City hall. We started with updates from the leadership, a show and tell from John, and then an equipment check of the go radios.

Not sure on the final count of attendees but we must have had at least 20 attend.

The go kits we checked for completeness and operational status. Missing parts were consolidate across the 9 kits to 1 kit in need of correction. Several kits were checked out by members. We had an education programming the kits by hand and then all of the kits were standardized by programming them via the laptop with the list that was provided.
