Several important topics were discussed during the November 9th meeting, including emergency power for the new Sheriff’s office ARES radio room, potential ham radio repeater changes, August 2017 solar eclipse, “Last Mile” or neighborhood communications during a communications outage in Central Oregon and training on accurate message handling during a emergency was provided.
Jim P. distributed a Standard Operating Procedures manual. The manual is close to 300 pages long and includes technical references to Deschutes County ARES radio sites and equipment. Parts of this manual will be placed in the file locker on this website for downloading. Thanks Jim!
