For the clubs who are lucky enough to have dedicated space for the club station  (Red Cross, EOC, their own building, etc),  a) do you have an Internet connection, and b) is it provided or do you purchase your own?

The Midland (TX) Amateur Radio Club has a member who has a Clear modem for his business.  He only needs it a week or two a year so the rest of the time he leaves it at our clubhouse.  We provide a tax deductible receipt for his donation.

It's pretty handy!

McMinn Co Amateur Radio Club, Inc. is very fortunate that the City of Athens TN provides us 24 hour connectivity. Not sure if it is still DSL or they moved to cable. We run a 24/7 remotely controled operation with APRS digipeater / Igate and packet system with digi, node, mailbox, and WL2K packet RMS (which the WL2K folks say can't be done, we've been doing it 2 years).

If one of your members lives close by, you could try beaming your interwebs between 2 Engenius access points w/ directional panels.  We've done that here in S FL to get interwebs to repeater sites for EchoStink, IRLP, AllStar, DStar, TRBO, etc.

The COOKEN club here in Licking county meets at a local community college which has wifi access plus we have access to a complete media hub right in the meeting room.

Lancaster Amateur Radio Club (near Buffalo, NY) has internet at our clubhouse and purchases it from Time Warner. Our APRS and IRLP is hooked to it also.

Thanks to all who replied.   We were doing our due diligence before making a decision.

In case anyone is curious, the Ocean-Monmouth Amateur Radio Club (N2MO) has a cable modem, and will be moving to a 100MB fiber connection nest spring.
