It's that time again. I've started posting events for the six home games at CU, per the current schedule:

Saturday 9/9 at noon

Saturday 9/16 at noon

Saturday 9/23

Saturday 10/7

Saturday 10/28

Saturday 11/11

If you want to participate, please find the event and sign up as soon as you can.

This is a great opportunity to assist one of our served agencies in their support of public safety, situational awareness as well as an excellent opportunity to enhance your training and experience with providing video coverage for future emergency events.

We welcome folks who don't have field experience with D-ATV. If you can, please attend the D-ATV training on Saturday 8/5 if you haven't attended before.

It's time again for our annual digital amateur TV (D-ATV) training before the CU football season opens.

This is the same training as last year, including (1) how we use ATV, (2) show-n-tell, and (3) how DVB-T works and why it works best for us.

If you couldn't make last year's training, or you're new and would like to be involved in our D-ATV events, or you'd like a refresher, please sign up (look under events).

The training will be held at the EOC from 8:30 to noon on Saturday, 5 August.

We'll need to field two teams for this year's Bolder Boulder, one at the starting line (30th & Walnut) and one at the finish (CU's Folsom Field), plus the usual folks in the press box as for a football game. So we're looking for 6+ folks that have ATV experience at CU and similar events. Please sign up on the event page.

Starting time is expected to be 6am.

Denver International Airport (DIA) will be having a firefighting exercise at their fire training center, including a (fake) burning aircraft and a mass casualty drill. We will be supporting only the part at the fire training center, and not in the terminal / EOC.

We need 6-8 folks with experience running digital ATV at CU -- please see the event page, and if you can help us, sign up soon, as we must get our list of volunteers to DIA early.
