I'm pretty sure to run a POS, you only need the anchoring skill, which I have (to level 3), and I think you need the relevant roles as well to set it up for a corp. I've never actually done it myself, but I do have the skills/equipment (other than the POS itself).
We could run smaller-scale wormhole ops without a POS, until we get the isk up to buy one. I can fit around 4km3 in my Viator, so we could potentially go out and just fill that up. Not really sure how it works.
I'm also planning to organise a couple of ops during the week (all proceeds to the corp) - probably at least one mining op, and maybe a pvp roam or two. If anyone has standings for level 4 missions in the area, we might be able to do some as a group. If not, I'll get to work grinding standings once I bring my Domi down from Amarr space.
