I told them that the existing dealer in San Antonio, in concert with the Texas distributor, had sucessfully blocked our entry into that area for three months ... and that we finally went directly to the manufacturer and placed our order. That order was for what is called an ”800 Trunking System”! I’m sure that really excited you . . . and you could care less what one is. One could probably sneak up and bite you and you wouldn't recognize it! And, no, it has nothing to do with trees! In a sentence ... it is a sophisticated radio system for companies which have a need for two-way communications with a fleet of cement trucks, delivery trucks, cabs, ambulances, school buses etc., and choose to pay $ IO per month for "airtime” per radio instead of $100 per month as they would with a cellular phone in each of their vehicles1 Please take my word for it . . . you have to have some form of two-way communications to manage a fleet of vehicles out on the road Does that make sense7 Anyway. I informed my brothers in the Lions that installation of that system virtually assured HCC of $2.500 OOO in sales. You can coordinate 2,500 two-way radios on the system at a cost to the user of $995 each. Additional related revenues are the $10 per month for air time and $3 per month for the maintenance contract not bad numbers tor a bunch of country boys and girls from lust outside the Big City! Sounds like a golden opportunity doesn’t it7' Now we get to the point* Do you remember last week when I so ’sagely' stated that you should always ask for His guidance ". before doing anything even little things . ”? And I stated that I usually got into my biggest jams when I tried to solve things on my own without talking to him I have GOT to tell you some of the things I have tried . . in order to solve my problems of bringing this system into the Big City, installing it in San Antonio, getting my marketing personnel to sell the radios, advertising etc : 1) Developed a 35-page business plan for distribution to potential investors showing the profits to be made over the next tour year* with the system 2) Handed the document out to five investor groups. 3) Tried to sell and lease back one of our existing radio towers (at Canyon lake) 4) Tried to refinance one of the existing radio towers (at Canyon Lake) 5) Tried to sell the copyright to a commemorative coin that the com pany owns Plus, probably three of four other creative methods of raising the necessary capital to get the system going in San Antonio* None of them have worked* Believe me atter the first two or three dead-ends, I started asking for GUIDANCE The three extra months it has taken us to get around the hm-drences has sorely drained ou> resources. I have truly been humbled It is now totally in His hands . . as it should have been from the start lf you would please pray for me to have the wisdom common sense and good judgement to handle the situation . . I would be most thankful. Believe me this is not a situation similar to the farmer sitting on the front porch asking The Lord to please harvest his corn crop for him* All of my employees as well as myself are dedicated to somehow getting this system installed ... but we need some additional capital in order to do it It may not BL His will. Pray about that also if you would! lf you need more information please feel free to call me at 629-5888. Bob Lewis (Ed. Note: This space sponsored by HCC, Inc ) STORE HOURS: 7:00 A.M.
