Countywide Exercise & SET • Radio Programming-Introductory

Date: 09/28/19 Start: 8:00 AM End: 1:00 PM Location: Edith Morley Park, Campbell
Credential Credit (What's this?): Yes

Overall Event:  This is a county-wide communications exercise focused on emergency communications.  It is designed to provide participants with valuable in-field operating experience.  It will include several fun and challenging assignments.  This event will also serve as our annual ARRL Simulated Emergency Test (SET) drill for 2019.

Scenario:  This activity is for those who need help with programming their radios.

It is common to have a radio that someone else configured for you or you programmed using computer software. That works well until you are in a situation of needing to use a station not already stored in your radio.  This activity will give you a "cheat sheet", and practice using it for contacting stations not already stored in your HT or mobile radio. The cheat sheet will be on paper as well as a file that you can download onto your smart device.
We will include a list of stations for you to contact during this event as practice using what you have just learned.
The instruction will be one-on-one using your own radio. We will have a collection of all the most popular HTs and mobile radios, so you can see how other radios are programmed if you are curious.

Location:  Edith Morley Park, Campbell

DSW:  You need a County DSW registration to participate. If you do not have a valid County DSW registration you will be able to register for DSW at the event.
