The next regular monthly meeting will be held on:

Tuesday April 15th at 5:30 PM

Location: Northwest Conference Room, Motorola Solutions, 1301 E. Algonquin Rd, Schaumburg.

As discussed at the March meeting, we will be having our April meeting at the Motorola facility in Schaumburg on April 15 at 5:30 PM.   The club will provide pizza and soft drinks for all.  You will be able to tour the fabulous K9MOT ham shack, and we will have a presentation titled LIGHTNING-KEEPING IT OUTSIDE on lightning protection for hams, by Kent Dulaney, K9KMD.  Kent is a recently retired long-time master trainer for Motorola and has taught many classes on Motorola's R56 standard (the industry standard for telecommunications site design and protection )

 We need to know in advance the names of all members and guests who are not current Motorola Solutions employees that will be attending, so please reply to me directly at and let me know if you will be able to join us.  We have to get visitor badges made in advance so I need to know your intentions NO LATER THAN 11 APRIL please. 

On the day of the meeting we will need to meet non-employees at Door 11 and escort you to the meeting location in the Northwest Conference Room.   We'll have someone at door 11 at 5 PM and again at 5:25.  For those who are unfamiliar with the campus, the address is 1301 East Algonquin Road in Schaumburg.  Please enter through the far west guard gate off of Alqonquin Road.  Tell the guard you're meeting a Motorola employee at Door 11 for a meeting.  Proceed through the gate, through the stop sign and about 1/10 mile farther.  Turn left, enter the parking lot and you should see Door 11.  I'll send out a map when the day gets closer.  You will need to bring some form of ID such as driver's license.

I hope you will be able to join us, it should be a great time!
