Due to the severe impact caused by Hurricane Sandy last week to the
eastern provinces of Cuba we were asked to postpone the "GROS National
Meeting" we had scheduled for November 8th to 11th.

The Meeting location at Camagüey did not receive any damage but the
provinces of "Santiago de Cuba", "Holguín" and "Guantánamo" were badly
affected and many houses, schools and factories loss their roofs or were
damaged by fallen trees. Several ham radio operators lost their houses.

Most of the state resources are now been prioritized to assist to the
people of this three provinces that lost their houses. Under this
circumstances we were asked to reschedule the National Meeting and the
Coordination Board agreed with the request as a solidarity to our colleagues.

Many other activities the National Amateur Radio Federation (F.R.C.) had
scheduled were also postponed included its National Council.

We are working on possible dates not sooner than January. We sorry all the
inconvenience and the G.R.O.S. Coordination Board (Grupo de
Radioaficionados para Operaciones Satelitales) will announce the new date
when possible.

We still have great hopes with this First Meeting and during this extra
months we will work harder to improve our work and make it better.


G.R.O.S. Coordination Board
