Dear Bountiful City District Emergency Coordinators and Communicators.


We are pleased to announce in response to interest from many of our Districts another Technician license course. Bountiful City’s emphasis on amateur radio as the primary communications link to the districts in case of an emergency requires radio operators for each District.  Additionally, many districts would like to use amateur radio to communicate within their districts in an emergency.  Because of these considerations, there has been considerable interest in classes to help interested individuals get their Technician Class license.

 The last class we offered had a pass rate of about 95%.  This is an intensive class, but we have broken it down into 4 classes of about 2 hours each, with a fifth final evening in Clearfield, where the test will be administered.  There is no charge for the class, but the final licensing session requires a test fee of $15.

Hawaii False Alarm

Category: Education
Published: Friday, 16 February 2018
Written by Craige Olson

A recent NBC News Left Field report asserted that hams "could save our lives" in a disaster. A team from NBC News' nascent digital news unit Left Field was in Hawaii to visit with some radio amateurs to produce a report when the false nuclear missile alert happened on January 13. Left Field's report points out how much we rely on cell phones and 21st century technology...and what we would do if these suddenly were no longer available. Amateur Radio operators "are standing at the ready and may save us all," NBC Left Field said in the tease to its YouTube version of its report. Accessible directly from NBC News, the report, with Left Field's Jacob Soboroff, runs 7:22. "Ham radio is one of the ways you'd be able to hear what's happening," when conventional telecommunications systems fail, Soboroff told his viewers. Among those interviewed in the piece are ARRL Section Manager Joe Speroni, AH0A, and Assistant Section Manager Kevin Bogan, AH6QO. NBC News says its Left Field unit "is a new internationally minded video troupe that makes short, creative documentaries and features specially designed for social media and set-top boxes."
