2012 Mid Tenn Summer Tailgate and Emergency Fair Review

Relive the events and participants of the 2012 Mid Tenn Summer Tailgate and Emergency Fair. This event was the first tailgate in the area to combine the Ham Radio community and the preparedness community to offer products from both.

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

WD8KVQ, W4AZM & KK4CGM narrate a presentation to a preparedness group, at a Goodletsville convention, who are interested in the value of Ham Radio in emergency situations. 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. Basics about radio are covered including repeaters, simplex operation and how digital modes can be used for communication.

Real-World Fox Hunt

On July 18, 2013, the Short Mountain Repeater was locked up by a transmitting signal from a station and disrupted the hospital net. W4WRB recounts the series of events he and other radio techs took in finding the offending station. This is an interesting look into the behind-the-scenes requirements of what it takes to keep a repeater operational.

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.
