January 2017 Meeting Speakers

Category: Club and Radio News Published: Thursday, 29 December 2016 Written by Joe Giraudo

The next meeting will be held on January 14, 2017 at 10:00 AM at the Davis County Sheriff's Office in Farmington.

The program will include two back to basics presentations which should prove invaluable to new operators and should be interesting to veteran presenters as well.

Our first presenter will be Mel Parkes, NM7P the ARRL Section Manager for Utah.  Mel will discuss the ARRL Field Organization, what it is comprised of, how it functions, and available volunteer opportunities. Mel will also give us an update on current events as they relate to amateur radio.

Our second presenter will Be Gary Davis, KE7MQF, the ARRL Emergency Coordinator for Davis County.  Gary will speak about the Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES).  He will discuss how it operates, training opportunities and how it co-exists with the Radio Amateur Emergency Service (RACES).

 

I look forward to seeing you there!
