I can rally after 1900 most days except wednesdays.  Saturdays and sundays are viable as well all day on alternating weeks.

May I recommend that the rally point be somewhere other than a person's house.   It is not wise to invite a group of potential wackjobs to your castle on the first date.   This is the voice of experience speaking.

I will set aside time 27 August .

A place on HWY 99 makes sense.

Here is a suggested format , and NO - I am not volunteering to coordinate.

Preliminary Meet up Agenda    27 August 2013

 

Where: TBD

Time: TBD

 

Individuals will exchange contact information prior to meeting.  A POC (point of contact) must be appointed to coordinate head count and rally point prior to meeting commencement.

 

The location selected should be one that will not be high profile and is friendly to a group of people chatting.   Dive bars are good for this however; some people may not be comfortable with a bar.

Low observable is preferred.

The AO concept is not arbitrary- It does makes sense to have a reasonable response time to the group.  I would say perhaps, adjust the geography in favor of a rally point or something that everyone involved can say, muster in 20 minutes ? 

I know this sounds profound as timing can easily be stretched out due to the usual suspects.    My point is the possibility of team members becoming isolated from each other in an emergency...  This does bring up the old conversation of radio communications.

I know it is a capital expense yet- I hope everyone has something running 10 - 160 meters .

I'm on a flex schedule, so it varies week-to-week.  Again, I have several friends I would be presenting information to, and it may come down to forming more than one unit, judging by the number of people interested.  But let me know when the meeting is and I'll show up.

When you say 20 mile AO, you mean 20 mile radius?  I feel like that's a good starting point, but that it would also be prudent to look at a map and trim the area down for anywhere it's just insanely difficult to get to quickly.
