Greetings to the members of the Communications Technical Chapter. I am honored to be given the chance to play some small part in supporting the IEEE community in Nebraska. I am currently the licensed Professional Engineer for HunTel Engineering in Blair, NE. I have spent the last five years working on designing and overseeing the construction of Fiber-to-the-Home projects across the Midwest. I hope to be able ot get to know other members across the state and learn what they do and the issues that they face in getting tasks completed.
Two issues that we have been dealing with are working through the governmental regulations covering loans and grants available to expand the broadband infrastructure. The other is trying to find qualified folks willing to take on the challenge of the projects. I would like to hear from other members on these or other issues. I can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. I look forward to working with other IEEE members to move the organization and profession forward. – Everett L.
