12/29/18 – 5th Saturday Activity

Meeting Date: 
Saturday, December 29, 2018 - 08:00

Due to the holidays, the usual “5th Saturday” exercise will be a low-key activity.

Activity Description: Send a digital data message to the Emergency Coordinator.

1. Verify that each Clark County ARES/RACES member is capable of sending a digital data message.
2. Collect data on all Clark County ARES/RACES volunteer hours for 2018 (which will feed into the EC’s year-end report to CRESA).

Action Requested:
Send a digital data message to the EC, WB7OSC, reporting your total Clark County ARES/RACES volunteer hours for 2018. For additional practice, more than one digital mode can be used for this activity.

Data Mode Options:
• Packet BBS: Use CLRK 46 or CLRK 47 to leave your volunteer hours report for WB7OSC on the K7CLL-8 node.
• Winlink: Use any client software, including telnet, and email your volunteer hours report via the Winlink system to WB7OSC.
• Just for fun: Between 8 AM and 10 AM on Saturday, December 29, 2018, contact WB7OSC on CLRK 5 using the MT63-2000L digital mode to give your volunteer hours report.

Early Message:
Members who expect to be unavailable on the date of this activity may send their Packet BBS or Winlink message to the EC up to a week beforehand.
