AuxComm May 19 and 20 in Moscow.
20 students including 3 Emergency Managers. Overall, very good class—all feedback was pretty positive.
Past Projects and Exercises:
May 26: Lotus Blossom Festival in JK Valley. 5 total participated. Two teams of 2 road guards and NCS operating from the AuxComm Trailer.
June 2: Safety Fair at Eastside Mall. Nine participants. More displays and visitors than in previous years.
Upcoming projects and exercises.
We need to do some nighttime testing with HF. We also need to find a way to establish a VHF/UHF link to Spokane and other surrounding areas.
Event idea: do a non-repeater exercise to determine who can talk to who on what equipment.
June 16: ARRL Kids’ Day. Spring Valley. We will use this weekend to make sure we are prepared for Field Day.
June 23: Humane Society of the Palouse 5K is interested in having comms. It’s also Field Day. We might be able to support both.
June 23/24: Field Day
No media information has been sent out, yet. Mike will try to help with media contacts. Autumn will contact the Chamber of Commerce.
We’ll set up at Spring Valley with the NWRS trailer.
July 21: FondoPalouse.com 100 mile bike ride. We’ll need about 25 hams to support this event. Bill will contact the event to see if they are interested in having Amateur Radio comms support. IF SO, we’ll contact all the usual suspects to see who can get and see if we can provide the needed support. We’ll have to do a route check before the ride to see where we have communications holes and decide how to fill them.
