Cleveland County ARES Net was called at 8pm; net control operator was WX5MOR/Gayland.
31 check-ins to the net.
- KD5UGO/Phil reminded us that our SCARS meeting for this month has been moved to Saturday June 18th, NFD #7, 9:30 am. (Meeting moved so that members may travel to and attend HamCom)
- WG5T/Bill advised that the 10m net will be tomorrow (Wednesday) evening, 8pm, 28.445 USB. WA6DKD is scheduled NCO.
- K5VL/Victor asked that everyone hang around for the Gossip Net, which will follow this net.
- Gayland confessed that he almost forgot the net, but that remembering 4 minutes prior to start was a great simulation of a disaster call-up – since disasters don’t normally give us preparation time. It’s always good to have your equipment ready to go for moment’s notice.
- HamCom is this weekend in Irving, Texas. This wil be a great place to acquire equipment needed for your go-kit or other emergency communications setup.
- Cleveland County Health Department will be holding a disaster exercise next Friday (June 17) morning. Volunteers are needed to allow them a chance to practice dispensing medications to a large number of people; call Amy Allen at CCHD if you’d like to help (only will take 5-20 minutes), or call Gayland or David Grizzle.
- An Incident Command System communications class – RADO/Radio Operator – will be held in September. Additional details can be found on the Oklahoma Homeland Security website. “This course introduces public safety professionals and support personnel to various Radio Operator concepts including radio etiquette, dispatch operations, interoperable communications, and emergency communication procedures. This RADO training will qualify the participant to serve in an all-hazards environment as communications support for public safety, wildfire, marine, aviation, and HF radio communications.”
Net concluded at 8:26 pm.
