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!

Announcing a BCARES training session for July

The session will be held at the Boulder County EOC and conducted by Dan Barber of the Office of Emergency Management

This training module is a requirement for the Facility Support (F) level of BCARES membership.

You can indicate your attendance at this session by going to the calendar on the main page of this site and clicking on Thursday July 24th. Follow the menu items for 'Booking' so we know that you will be attending and we can provide Dan with your name so he can create a login userid for you.

This web based tool is one that is critical in tracking all the activity by the various agencies in support of all sorts of Boulder County emergencies. One of the real benefits of this system is that you will be able to monitor the activities from anywhere you have access to the internet and will not need to call in for information or possible assignments.

Feel free to contact Jerry Schmidt (N0OUW) or George Weber (KA0BSA) with any questions.

Just a quick reminder of a couple of things.

This weekend on Saturday, June 14th, is Airport Day. There will be lots of interesting thing to see. The National Guard and other groups involved in last September's Flood will be there. We can show them our appreciation.

Also there is going to be a Weather Spotter Training starting at 8AM and going until about noon in the terminal. This is a very important skill to have even if it's just for you and your family's personal safety. BCARES has a net on the repeater (146.760) starting informally every time the weather looks threatening. Listen in and check in if you are a Weather Spotter. With the training listed below, you will be issued a Spotter Number and become a valuable asset.

8:00am MDT ~ Boulder Airport Terminal conference room ~ 3335 Airport Road, Boulder, CO
Contact Information: christelucas@yahoo.com

I hope to see you there on Saturday,
