Acting President’s Report – August 2017

i Aug 16th No Comments by

Our 22nd August Social meeting will have a guest speaker from the Royal Flying Doctor Service, Ross Curtis.    Ross will provide an overview of the services offered by RFDS followed by some specific advice for members travelling in remote areas.    What equipment should we be carrying e.g. Satellite Phones, HF radio, 1st aid kits (essential components) maybe even Defibrulation units?

Do you have skills or an interest in long distance communications particularly Satellite Phones?
It’s been a number of years since we purchased a pair of Sat. Phones and the world of technology has moved on.   We wish to form a small sub-committee to research and report on the best options for the Club in the future.   Please have a chat to a Committee member ‘yellow member badges’ or send an email to my address.

The Management Committee was recently approached by a club member to promote their business in Catchat.   The committee agreed that it was not in favour of filling Catchat with commercial advertising, however it is willing to consider club member requests to promote their products or services in the ‘Discounts’ section of Cat Chat in return for some benefit to club members by way of a discount or special entitlement to fellow club members.   If you have a product or service you feel meets this criteria please discuss with one of the committee members.
