Amateur (HAM) radio operators in Salt Lake City and the surrounding area are encouraged to participate in the SE Division Emergency Communications Net.
Thursdays, 9 p.m. on 147.50 MHz simplex.
Check-in is first by the seven community council areas of the division (Yalecrest, Foothill/Sunnyside, Sunnyside East Association, Wasatch Hollow, Bonneville Hills, East Bench, and Sugar House). Visitors outside the division are invited to check in afterwards. Everyone is welcome to participate, including giving announcements, asking questions and proposing topics of emergency communications and other preparedness for discussion.
This Thursday, September 22, 2011, Dick Leining (W7DML) of the Wasatch Hollow CERT team will give training about radiograms.
Please spread the word, including to people who may not be licensed in amateur radio but are interested in emergency communications, even inviting them to listen in from your radio station. You never know when one of those people may be interested in becoming a scribe, even if he/she does not want to become licensed, as is already the case in one of our areas!
