Packet Training Opportunity

Beginning in March, we are attempting to schedule BCARES member training on the 3rd Saturday of each month trough October. Hopefully this will help you to better manage your calendars and take advantage of the training sessions offered.

This month's session will be an Introduction to Packet Communications, plus workshop, presented by Mark Huff (KØLRS)

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

Please click on the date (March 17) 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.

Announcing an opportunity to obtain CPR/AED and First Aid Certification for BCARES members.

The cost for this training will be $6 for CPR and $1.50 for First aid. This certification is required for the Field Support (S) and Field Qualified (Q) levels of BCARES membership and is good for 2 years.

There is a maximum class size of 9 for this training, and a minimum of 5, so sign up, with a booking, as soon as possible if you are interested. This is the best price I have ever seen, and it will be taught by Terry Young who teaches these courses for ARES groups across Colorado.

With an estimate of 3-4 hours for each session, I would suggest that we bring a sack lunch for a brief lunch break between sessions.

The date is set for Saturday June 11 and will be held in the Pawnee room in the Boulder EOC from 9am to 4pm.
