Chairman's Comments - Posted June 27th 2019

Greetings -

Well folks, I've got some good news and some bad news.

First, the good news. On June 14th, MORA acquired a used 7 X 14 camper trailer which will be used to make us capable of providing an emergency mobile or portable communications capability.  

This is a goal that our organization has been quietly talking about in the background for over a year now. Other plans have had priority, however a chance came along to act on this goal, and we grabbed at it.

At first, we were looking at acquiring a FEMA trailer. That idea fell through when we discovered there were too many strings attached. That should come as no surprise, since it seems that is the way it goes when you are looking into government programs.

Since then, a few of us have been just casually looking around for campers that were for sale around the area. So, what happens? On a day that we weren't even looking for trailers, we ran across one that was for sale in Mora!

Acquiring the camper is only a first step. It is an older unit, but it's in basically good condition. It is going to need some work - mainly on the inside - to remodel it into exactly what we want.

We think we know what we basically want to do. We just don't know at this point how we will configure it. We will discuss exactly what we want at our July 27th board meeting, then we will begin to plan an interior layout. 

It is exciting to think that we will be able to add this service capability. My only regret is that we had absolutely no chance to get it ready in time for Field Day this year. 

As far as the bad news is concerned, I'd rather not go into that until I know for sure. However, if it turns out that the bad news is real, I'm not sure how we will be able to deal with it.
