We expect to roll out digital ATV for CU football games this year.

Digital ATV training is for members who have not worked at CU before, as well as those who have but want to know what will be different in the digital world.

We will follow that up with a session on DVB-T and how best to engineer transmissions for high quality pictures. This should be interesting even to those members who have been participating in the (digital) ATV net lately.

Please look on the event calendar and book your seat!

Volunteers are needed to help test medication dispensing operations.
Be part of the first ever Boulder County public Point-of-Dispensing (POD) exercise!
Public health agencies throughout the country are required to protect people from exposure to biological agents like Anthrax. Part of the plan requires that medications are provided as rapidly as possible to prevent people from getting sick. Boulder County has developed a drive-through method and one that uses buses to collect people from outlying locations and bring them to the POD to ease traffic and speed up the process.

What's Involved?.
Use your own vehicle to drive-through several times to simulate picking up preventative medication

Event to be held at Boulder County Fairgrounds May 21st 8-Noon
