Latest Information

Our next meeting will be on March 20th. Our speaker will be Roozy Moabery W1EH. Roozy is the District Emergency Coordinator for Amateur Radio Emergency Service Los Angeles Section (ARESLAX) Rapid Response Team, a United States NWS Skywarn Spotter, and is FEMA ICS/NIMS Certified. The program is entitled Building an EmComm Trailer.

He will present the planning and building of an Emergency Communications Trailer that was built to provide communications support to the community during disasters and for use in other community events. The program will provide information on what is important for an individual or organization that decides to build an Emergency Communications trailer. It will show how to plan the layout, the workspaces, weight distribution, equipment, lighting, A/C and heating, plus cable wiring, antennas and mast safety.


For hams new to DX, The New DXers Handbook, written by Bryce Anderson, K7UA, is a must read. It is about 40 pages in length and answers all the questions. Best of all, it is a free download.
Thank you Mark, K6FG
