|Introductions & Welcome
|Hands on Practice with Older Go Kits
We will take a look at the older go kit radios and do some hands-on practice using them in order to get familiar with their operation. This includes the HF/VHF/UHF Yaesu FT-857 and the 1.2 GHz ICOM ID-1 DSTAR.
The plan is to setup and deploy the 3 original Go Kits (both the yellow and orange ones) furnished by the Southeastern Pennsylvania Counter-Terrorism Task Force. This will give us a full set of frequencies that are available to us to operate on: HF, VHF/UHF using the Yaesu FT-857 and 1.2 GHz high speed digital data using the ICOM ID-1 DSTAR units. The kits also have a Pactor modem, antenna tuner, notebook computer for digital modes, wireless router, DC portable printer and magnetic mount antennas.
|Look at ARES Communications Trailer
We'll go outside to see the latest updates to the trailer, new dual position desk installation. We will also take a look at antenna options both at the 911 center, and for whenever the trailer is deployed to another location.
|If we are on schedule, we can have a general discussion and Q&A at the end of the meeting.
