ARPSC Special training

Sunday, January 6, 2019 12:00:00 AM - Tuesday, December 31, 2019 12:00:00 AM

The training calendar has been nearly filled and there are a number of great programs upcoming. (See attached calendar). Anyone is welcome to attend any of the trainings or meetings; you do not have to be an ARPSC member. Two special upcoming trainings: Saturday February 9th’s special session will be getting started and navigating the FLDigi/Winlink communications modes presented by Steve Bellner W8TER, who is the Lucas County Hospital Net and FLDigi NCS. Saturday March 2nd will feature a presentation on Packet/JNOS, the newly installed Ida HamGate and navigating packet connections. Jay Nugent WB8TKL, the chairman of the State Digital Radio Group will be putting this presentation on for us. Both days will start at 9am in the EOC and are planned to wrap up around noon unless there is a lot of good discussion going on. 2019 SKYWARN Training presented by NWS Detroit/White Lake, Monroe EMD and ARPSC, will be Tuesday April 2nd 6:30-8:30pm at the Bedford Library on Jackman Rd in Temperance. It is highly recommended every amateur radio operator take this class at least every 2 years and ARPSC members must take the class every two years to maintain their certification status. Congratulations to Rodney Haddix KD8ZNZ who was selected to fill the 3rd AEC slot for Monroe County! Rodney takes over from Dave Buchko AC8SI, who is stepping down as AEC to devote more time to his family. We would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to David for all his years serving as AEC and EC, Dave was instrumental in bringing in many new members to the ARPSC program. REMINDER: If there is bad winter weather the night of an ARPSC meeting and the meeting is cancelled, the MCANS notification system and announcements at the top of the hour on ’72 Monroe will be utilized to get the information out. The next monthly meeting of the MCARPSC is Thursday February 7th 730pm at the EMD Training room. Hope everyone’s 2019 is starting out great!
