PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE IN MEETING LOCATION
September’s meeting will feature a Home-Town Technology Marvel: Dick Perin, ex WA8FTU, of TBS Special Projects Engineering. Join us at 7pm for a look at how Turner got started, what Turner is like today, and what the future may hold for Turner, as well as broadcasting in general. Dick will give us a video and audio tour of one of the most sophisticated TV plants in the world, located right here in Atlanta. Dick has been designing and building the trucks used to pick up sports and other venue programming – those things are marvels of engineering!
Having corporate headquarters for a national or international organization in your home town is often a source of pride for a city. If asked what corporations are based out of Atlanta what comes to your mind? Probably Delta Airlines, Coca Cola, Home Depot, and maybe UPS or Georgia-Pacific. Atlanta is also home to Turner Broadcasting System, Inc.
Beginning this month the meeting location has been changed. The NEW LOCATION is at the IHOP Restaurant, 920 Marketplace Boulevard in Cumming, GA. This is just in front of our lunch meeting location at Lenny’s, off GA 00 Exit 14. Come in and ask for the room where SARA is meeting. Or you can say the amateur radio group. Someone suggested we not ask for the hams meeting, as ham has a different meaning in the food services industry. If you like, come in at about 6:00 and eat with us.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
