Club Meeting March 13th 2014

Just a reminder that the Lenoir Amateur Radio Club meeting is this Thursday at the Gamewell Fire Department starting at 7:00 p.m. We will be discussing our involvement with the Catawba Valley Hamfest. If you are a club member, we get a free table to set up and sell items. We can purchase more if needed. So we need a head count of how many are going by Thursday. If you can’t come to the meeting, and want a spot “at the table”, send me an email.

We will be providing communications for the Hibriten Hill Run. Since this event can count towards ARES training, I will be holding an ARES meeting after the club meeting to go over the particulars. My goal is to have a net control station, organizer shadow, start and finish line station, a station at the medical station, and stations along the route (maybe every half mile if possible). The event lasts about 4 hours starting at 8:00 a.m. however we should be there a little earlier.

Winter Weather Drill

This is a drill

There will be a CARES net on 147.330 at 9:00 p.m. tonight, Tuesday 11th 2014 for a winter weather event. Utilize any information you have as a checklist for deployment (usually called a “to go kit”. Use this to see if you are prepared. Remember to make sure that you’re family and home are prepared also. When you check-in, give your current weather conditions and let me know if you have 4 wheel drive. If you don’t have a to go kit, calculate how much time it would take you to get your gear together.

Even though this is a drill, be prepared in case we are called upon to provide communications.

If you don’t read this email until after the drill, please let me know you received it so I can make sure all ARES members’ email address is good.

Thank you
