Important announcement regarding N5CST / KD5WVV packet system.

Effective immediately, the Tulsa Digital Radio Club has severed all radio and internet ties with the Poteau, OK N5CST packet BBS system operated by Kevin Davidson KD5WVV.  He is also no longer a member of our organization.

We received information this morning that Mr. Davidson was arrested June 15th.  The press release from the arresting police department outlines a previous criminal conviction that we were unaware of until this morning.  The nature of the conviction classifies Mr. Davidson as a potential danger to the general public and falls outside of the bounds of acceptable membership behavior for the TDRC.

None of the "social media" information exchanged for the crime of June 15th was passed through the AE5ME-15 BBS system and we have extensive filtering safeguards to prevent that from occurring.  The AE5ME-15 system will continue to operate with our affiliate in Magnolia, AR. and other clients in Oklahoma, Missouri, and Western Arkansas.

The leadership of the TDRC will be meeting in the near future to determine additional steps need to be taken to prevent a membership situation such as this from happening in the future.  No further announcements will be made regarding this deeply troubling matter, but anyone is welcome to contact me at ae5me at yahoo.com if you have questions.

Jeff Scoville AE5ME, TDRC President
