Saturday In Person Meet

This Saturday, January 13th, will be our first in-person meet of the year.  It will be held at station 74 by the fitness center at 9:00 AM.

There are two things that we will be covering.  The first is club elections.  We are looking to fill five positions.  These positions are President, Vice President, Secretary, Net Coordinator, Education and Training Coordinator.  Currently we have only had two nominations.  Jason and I are desperatly looking for more help with WVCARC.  If you are interested in running for one of these positions please respond to this email.  If you would like to nominate someone please respond to this email.  Nominations need to be in by 9:00 AM tomorrow (Friday).   The duties for each postion can be found in the Bylaws here: Bylaws

The second item that we will be covering is the packet radio system that has been implimented at the Fire Stations.  I will be going over what packet is, what is needed to get setup, and how to use it.  I think this will be a fun and information packed training.  It has never been easier to get involved with packet radio as the price of the equipment has come down significantly.  If you have some old packet equipment that you want to see if it will work bring it.

Hope to see each of you there.  If you have any questions feel free to send them my way and please consider nominating yourself for one of the club positions.

Official 2018 Standard Load Posted

The official 2018 Standard Load has been release. You may view and download it here: 

Instructions on using the Standard Load and its purpose can be found here: 

Remember that the purpose of the standard load is to create "a standard programming sequence, designed to make your radio operations faster and easier. It is also designed to give you local control over your own frequencies while somewhat standardizing channels and channel names county-wide." This is a first for the Salt Lake Valley as well as West Valley City. Please review the instructions and the standard load out. If you have questions please bring them up at the next NET or post a comment below.
