  • Old Business:

    No old business to discuss

  • New Business:

    There is an urgent need for a new meeting location. OETA has been very generous allowing us to use their space over the years but a new location needs to be found.  Griffin Radio may be able to help out.  Brett Gilbert checked with Rib Crib but their space appears too small.  Other options suggested were maybe one of the Casinos or Baxter’s Interurban.  iHeart radio may be able to provide space in an emergency.

    If you have any suggestions please forward to Don Dobbs.

    Due to the lack of tech exhibits at the OAB being scheduled so close to the NAB the tech exhibits will be rescheduled for some time in late May or early June – additional information pending.

    Rohde & Schwarz will present in the June SBE meeting.
    Gates Air will possibly present in May

  • Adjournment:

    Meeting was adjourned – Thank you to Staco Energy for providing lunch for the chapter
