OK, folks, we've got tasking for TV support for Dead and Company concerts at Folsom this July. We need to staff two (2) cameras plus net control each night (Friday 7/13 and Saturday 7/14) from around 3pm to midnight.

The cameras will be run outside the stadium only, so gas masks are not required. 🙂

We prefer to staff this event with folks who already have training and field ATV experience, for example, having worked CU football TV support. Please go to the event page and sign up.

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

Saturday 9/15 at 1 pm

Friday 9/28 at 5 pm

Saturday 10/6

Saturday 10/27

Saturday 11/10

Saturday 11/17

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 8/18 if you haven't attended before.

We need your help, so please find the event(s) and sign up as soon as you can.

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, 18 August.

We have scheduled a WEBEOC training session for Tuesday evening May 22nd at the EOC.

WEBEOC is a web based application that allows BCARES members to Log-in from wherever they may be to obtain information about an active incident in progress, or to access certain BCARES documentation from the BCARES File Library.

WEBEOC is required training for the Facility Support level of BCARES membership (next level beyond Associate). This level of membership is used to determine your possible deployment to a shelter during an active incident.

BCARES currently has 30 Associate level members that do not yet have this training.

This session is limited to a maximum of 18 students, so if you are interested and available for this session, please click on the date in the calendar and 'Book' yourself into the session. If you have a problem in the booking process please contact Jerry directly. We need to submit a list of names and e-mail addresses prior to the session for the instructor to create a login for each participant.

Jerry (NØOUW)  >  n0ouw@arrl.net  or 303-775-8813 and leave a message....... Thanks

Packet Training - Part 2 - April 21st

The March training session went well. Attendees became familiar with the BCARES Packet Sets as well as their own personal setups. The big take-away was the fact that the technology is very old (AX.25), it still works today, and the only difference we are seeing is in the new interfaces (GUIs) being developed to help with setup. (Outpost Packet Message Manager, RCWinLink, RMS Express)

This second session is also to help members get up-and-running with their own packet equipment. People should bring their radios and hardware, if possible. The goal is it to make it work. All set-up questions welcome.

Please click on the date (April 21st) in the calendar and 'Book' yourself into this training if you are planning to attend.

Thanks...........Jerry  (NØOUW)

btw:

If this is your first time using packet please review videos 02, 04, 05, and 07 (they start at the bottom of the page) at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=UUFE00Ijq5WsDh7Y2Ak72CiA before the class to allow us more time for station setup.  Please bring your packet station to test or to help you get it operational.  We will also have BCARES packet stations to train on.
