Net Control Class

Category: Club and Radio News
Published: Monday, 20 February 2017
Written by K7ZZQ for KE7NZA
Effective Net Control Operations / How to be an Event Communications Coordinator Training Class

March 25, 2017 - 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM with a break for lunch between 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM at the Taylorsville City Hall, 2600 West Taylorsville Blvd. Tarylorsville, UT.

This is a full day specialized training session broken into two parts. In the morning will be Effective Net Control Operator training including best practices and functional guidelines. In the afternoon will be how to be an event communications coordinator including the use of Google Docs, Working with Event Directors, what are your responsibilities and duties, knowing the law, and best practices to make the event as smooth as possible for the volunteers.

These are specialized classes developed by folks who have been supporting events in the area for many years. We are in dire need of additional Net Control operators and Event Communications Coordinators as there are simply more and more events being put on that could use our help and not enough of us trained to help them. It is in our (HAM Radio Operators) best interest to work with and be available for as many of these public service events as possible or we will find that we simply won't be asked to assist again or, worse yet, we won't have had enough real time practice working in real life situations to be of any assistance when "the big one" hits and our communities need us.

These classes are open to any licensed HAM radio operator of any license class. You do not need to be a General or Extra to be a Net Control Operator or Event Coordinator, you just need the motivation to help and stay on task.

There will be a $25 charge for the class. To sign up for the class follow this link:
