Portable Emergency Generator Day
Monsoon season is coming. Now is a good time to start your generator and make sure everything is working. Bring your potable generator to the stake center parking lot and start and run your generator. Members from the stake will be assisting if you need it.
If you're looking to purchase a generator, see what others are using and why.
Also, stake amateur radio operators will be participating in a valley wide exercise in the church parking lot.
Members of the community are invited to both.

Aux Comm Training
Thanks for expressing your interest in Emergency Communications. First and foremost, you would need to take four online FEMA courses. Here are the links:
They are free, and take about a few hours each to complete. You will need to apply for a FEMA ID first. (There is a link for that on those sites.)
After you complete those courses, there is a 2 day, in-person class called AUXCOMM that is required for anyone who wishes to be involved in emergency communications at the county or state level.
To sign up for that, go to mcecg.net and sign up. Right now there is not a class scheduled, but there is a place holder there until they can work out just how to do the class with COVID restrictions in place. You will need to create a log in, and then select the tab "select events" to get to the sign up.

Radio's in the Park
Saturday April 10th, will be another "Radios In the Park." It will be held from 10:00 - 12:00 that day. The main frequency will be 146.460 with a PL tone of 77.0.. The frequencies will also be the same as those which are used for RUSS/RITP. We will be operating simplex on 146.460 MHz. You may wish to use the designated PL tone of 77.0, but it is not required (but some participants may not hear you if you do not.) For HF users, we will be planning on using LSB 7.178 MHz if that is clear. Of course, you may operate on other frequencies or modes as you wish to make contacts. The point of this exercise is to continue to use our skills, operate off grid power, to make contacts, and to have fun!
