      • The class on the 14th was informative and the instructor, Todd, did a good job of getting us through the material in clear and concise manner with plenty of examples of gear pulled from the racks of the store to highlight the many topics discussed to include:
        • Survival
        • Warmth
        • Security
        • First Aid
        • Miscellaneous additional items

    • If there is any desire to purchase MREs or you know where to make a purchase, please share your information during the net.  We'll ask during net time.
  • FEMA's:  Prepared, Not Scared: Teaching Children What To Do In An Emergency
    • https://www.fema.gov/media-library/assets/audio/182483
    • Each week, a National Preparedness Month weekly theme will focus on a different aspect of preparedness, including the importance of making an emergency plan, saving early for unexpected costs of disasters, getting involved in community preparedness efforts and teaching young people to prepare. In this episode, they focus on youth preparedness during a round table discussion with a few members of the FEMA team. They'll discuss the important roles children can play in creating a systematic shift in the culture of preparedness.
    • The podcast media archives:  https://www.fema.gov/media-library/multimedia/collections/620
VI.  DISCUSSION TOPIC
  • Putting it all together:
    • I recently put a Baofeng UV-5RTP in line the other day with 35' of coax connected to a Tram 1477-B on a 6' high tripod and conducted the Red-Eye Net on the Keller Peak Repeater.  I wore the Heil headset with boom mic and it worked very well.  The reason, to show a station with minimal cost can effectively provide good, sound radio.
    • The other reason is to research and gain confidence in the equipment I own and provide a base knowledge that allows me to help others put together similar stations that quite simply work.  They get the job done and can be an alternative to spending a lot of money a person might not have.
    • Pieces of the gear for review:
VII.  PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
  • National Preparedness Month: Prepared Not Scared (Western States) 30 seconds (Note each general area is covered via examples tailored to their potential issues).
  • FEMA:
  • .City of Riverside blast from the past:
  • 8th Annual Ready Riverside Emergency Fair, Saturday, September 21, 2019, 1100-1500, (11am-3pm).
