Fundamentals of Emergency Communications - NIGHT CLASS

Date: 07/13/22 Start: 6:00 PM End: 9:30 PM Location: 1210 Bordeaux Dr, Sunnyvale
Credential Credit (What's this?): Yes

Can you describe all of the major nets used within Santa Clara County? Do you know which nets are used for mobilization and message passing? Can you describe the three operational levels of the Resource Net and the procedures for each level? Do you understand how all of the fields of the Message form are to be used? Do you know what you need in order to get started as a net control? This Fundamentals course covers basic operating principles that Santa Clara County hams responding as DSWs should know and understand.

This is the second of two basic classes designed to get new hams feeling comfortable with city and county operating procedures. It is also an excellent introduction for experienced hams who are new to Santa Clara County operations and an excellent refresher for experienced Santa Clara County hams as well.

Attendees must have their own printed or electronic copy of the course materials.
