Angel Hands Foundation - Ride with the Angels 

We are 1 month away from the annual Ride with the Angels Bike Ride which supports the Angel Hands Foundation ( The families that staff the rest stops are the families that benefit from the funds raised by this ride.


This ride has 3 distances and starts at the Copperton Park.  All riders leave Copperton and head toward Utah County along Mountain View.  The 25 mile riders turn around at the South end of Mountain View at Porter Rockwell and head back to the park.  The 50 mile riders continue into Utah County to Saratoga before heading back.  The metric century riders make a loop into Eagle Mountain then head to Saratoga and then back to the park.


I am still in need of:

1 - Net Control

1 - SAG driver

1 to 3 more Rest Stop Comms


 If you can help please go to this link to sign up: or you can find the link to the event on the web site.


2 of the SAG routes for this event are in Utah County so I'd like to get more Utah County hams involved in the event.


There are 3 events on this day and I know that many of you have signed up for one of them.  If you know of any new hams looking to get involved please forward this email to them.

Our club has been asked to support the Davis Cup Marching Band Competition on Tuesday October 11th this year.  We need the War Wagon brought to Davis High School the morning of the competition or the evening before.   I'll be out of the area and we need someone to coordinate the event this year.  It would require you to meet with the Band Committee and schedule the Ham Radio Volunteers.  Not a large task as many people who supported it in previous years come back.  Please notify me if you are able to help.

North Salt Lake City Fireworks Event

Category: Serving In Our Community

Written by Chad Rapier


North Salt Lake City will be hosting their annual  fireworks event on July 2nd, at Eaglewood Golf Course.  The public is invited to this event, and continues to be an exciting event every year, that attracts thousand of people for this event.


What will we be doing? We will be communicating with the attendees about the keep out area, and the NSLPD about anything we see or hear.  We are keeping folks out of the fireworks keep out zone, off of the greens, out of the skydiver landing zone, out of the possible RC airplane pilot areas, and out of the ponds.  We will also be watching for lost children or other (medical, or disturbance) problems and generally being extra eyes and ears for the NSLPD. We help with the vendor parking entrance, prior to the golf course opening.

It is very laid back, and you have the opportunity for a front seat to the fireworks; I have a lot of couples come together to help out, get some vendor food, watch the activities and the fireworks.  It is a super easy way to help the community, practice a little radio, and get some entertainment in! We have a flyover scheduled this year, and skydivers will drop in on us too.  There are vendors, and most of the time there is a potluck dinner with NSLPD.


The Incident Commander holds a briefing at 16:00, with an event opening at 18:00, parking at the golf course is available by pass for volunteers. We will have the SDMFA Command Center with us to use, and can use the golf carts for transport.  If you can come at 16:00, please do so, to help cover the parking lot entrances.  Otherwise plan on being there at 18:00.  I have room in my vehicle if you would like to be up there at 16:00 and leave approximately 23:00. We will use the ARES simplex frequencies 145.570 Mhz (primary) and 145.750 Mhz (backup) for the event. Talk-in will be on 145.570. No tone or codes needed.

Utah Shakeout and NUHC Drill

Category: Serving In Our Community
Published: Monday, 18 April 2016
Written by Johnny Rauzi
If anyone wishes to check-in from an ECC, I would encourage you to do so or simply monitor the frequencies if you like.  This year we are adding another layer to our Utah Shakeout Drill between the Davis Hospital and Davis Hospital Weber Campus for the morning exercise only.  I'll break them down into two parts. 
Part 1 begins at 1000 hours as described below.
We will use the ARES Simplex 147.420 as Primary during the first shift with the Antelope 147.040 as Secondary until 1030 then switch over to the 147.260 Promontory Repeater as Primary with the Mt Ogden 146.900 as Secondary and participate in the NUHC Drill until it ends.  At that time switch back to the Primary and Secondary frequencies.  The Morgan County group typically use the Mt Ogden Repeater because they can't always hit the Promontory Repeater so we assist them whenever possible and pass their traffic as needed.
The second shift will use 147.420 as Primary and the Antelope 147.040 as Secondary up until the ARES Net at 2030.  At that time, Antelope will be Primary so those wishing to check into the ARES Net can do so on the ARES Simplex 147.420. 
Michelle will provide the assignment list to the Weber Campus front desk so they can check your ID and get you back to radio room.  I'll be at the Davis Hospital for both shifts so we'll plan on meeting in the main lobby at 0955 and 1855 hours then go back to the radio room.
If you know someone who would like to participate with you, send me their name, call sign, cell and email by Wednesday morning so I can add them to the final assignment sheet.

Part 2, the NUHC Drill portion begins at 1030 see the instructions below. 
FYI, our portion may only last 20-30 minutes depending on how many check-ins there are but a two hour time block was set aside for debriefing, etc.  Again, begin monitoring the Promontory and Mt Ogden Repeaters until the Ham Radio portion is over.
Subject: NUHC Communication Drill
Date: April 21
Time: 10:30 - 12:30
800 MHz = Hospital Commons
Ham = 147.260 - (tone 103.5) Promontory Point. BARC System
            146.720 - (tone 103.5) Mt. Logan. BARC System
            145.310 - (tone 103.5) Red Spur. BARC System
            146.900 - (tone 123.0) Mt. Ogden. Ogden Amateur Radio Club (For Morgan County only, if needed).
Satellite Phone: Call on 435-994-1124
At 10:30 we'll have a communication system set up at the Cache County EOC where Cache ARES and myself will answer radios and phones for each of you to test your 800 MHz, Ham and Satellite Phones.
When you check in with us you will give us your status (pretend), i.e., fully operational; partially operational; non-operational; facility damaged, but still functioning; damaged and needing evacuation; facility in good shape, but no electricity or culinary water; functional, but on backup power, etc. So, give some thought to where your facility is and how you would fair during/after a 7.0 earthquake in the Salt Lake Valley and report that to us.
Once you've checked in we'll give you a task to fulfill where you'll contact another organization and either offer assistance or request assistance. If possible please plan to be available from your check in time and for about another 20-30 minutes so we can connect you for your task.
If you haven't done so, please let me know which devices you plan to exercise and a close proximity of the time you'll be available.
If you have any questions please get with me. Otherwise, we'll be talking on Thursday.
Thanks everybody!
Kevin Christensen
