thanks for taking a look at it.  you sumed up our problems with the
agreement.  The ham club is a really small group, and we have only
slightly more funding than TCWUG, mostly because I gave the group $20 for
dues ;)

I would like to see equipment and/or money donated to the club.  we are a
registered U student organization, and a registered non-profit org.  so
anyone donating can recive tax write-offs.  the main reasons I was given
for why there needs to be a lease involved, is that Arnan does not want
the equipment donated, and taken home/pocketed by club members.  I can
understand this, but setting up a lease agreement is not the way to do it.

I'm willing to cough up a few hundred $ to purchase some of the equipment.
I am thinking about picking up outdoor enclosures, antenna masts, LMR-400,
and associated LMR-400 tools.  I may also order a soekris SBC so that I
can start testing and setting up my hostAP linux distro.

the soekris board is $277 for a single unit, or $270 for 2-4 units.  so if
anyone wants to go in on an order, let me know.  maybe we can get enough
orders to get the 5-24 discount.
