Project Description
January 14, 2018 The next scheduled workshop will be held at the Dunn Loring VFD Station 13, 2148 Gallows Road, Dunn Loring, VA 22027 Time: 1300-1600 (1:00pm - 4:00pm) Continuing opportunities for CERTs and others interested in amateur radio to learn operating procedures and gain hands-on experience with equipment and station operation. Workshop agenda will include a discussion of handheld radio set-up and operation for pre-planned (non-emergency) events using a base station for net control and coordination. As always the floor is open to discuss and answer any questions about equipment, training, antennas, and assembling your own station. Open to all - no matter what affiliation or level of interest in emergency communications and preparedness. Even if you do not yet have your own 'ham radio' there will be several types and models of radios available to ask questions about and use on the air! An on-the-air drill we conducted in the classroom to practice individual skills and become more experienced in using the radio. In the event of a weather cancellation the on-the-air drill will be conducted using one of the NVFMA repeaters [146.79- ; 146-91- ] during the scheduled workshop time window. {please park in the rear of the building and enter using the glass double doors to the community room}.
