Emergency Communications 2

W4AZM & KK4CGM follow up the E-Comm 1 presentation with a more detailed look at Ham Radio and the value it offers in emergency situations. Subjects covered in this presentation include understanding the different FCC licensing classes and how they relate to the type of communication you can achieve during infrastructure failure. Information is presented on the ARRL National Traffic System (NTS) and how hams and non-hams can utilize it. Basic wave propagation principles are also discussed. The audio in this video drops out occasionally for a brief time, but not to the point you loose the point of the conversation.

Emergency Communications 1

Subjects covered include how public infrastructures may be affected in various emergency events and the benefits Ham Radio can offer for communication during these failures.

WD8KVQ's EMP Presentation

EMP Presentation

For those who could not attend the January SMRC meeting, you missed a very interesting and in-depth presentation by WD8KVQ on electro-magnetic pulse events. Bruce made a solid case for expecting such an event from some of America's enemies and explained the simplicity by which they could disable the electrical grid of the United States with one atomic detonation in our atmosphere. 

There are many theories and concepts about how to protect electronic equipment from such an event. Bruce's presentation went into detail to expel some of the myths and misconceptions about what would be required to protect your ham gear. You can access the presentation as a member of SMRC under the Video Library/Club Presentations/Members Only menu item. 

Changes to Email Accounts

The website is now residing with a new hosting service which will allow us to more easily manage our public and member websites. The new hosting account does not have the email accounts available that we had with the previous host, so as a consequence, all smrclub.com email accounts are non-functional. If this recent change presents a problem for your communications, please call me at 615 482-7267.

Congratulations KK4MKH!
