NTS Training in Central Massaschusetts

Hello to all….

The following was forwarded by Public Information Coordinator, Ron Wood-W1PLW from Mark Rubin-WB1ARZ Worcester Emergency Communications Team (WECT) Director:


It is long been thought that we need a refresher class on NTS traffic and particularly net procedure and protocol. On that note, Team Member, Ralph, KD1SM has agreed to teach such a class which we are calling “Traffic School.” This class will take place on Saturday, March 24, 2007 from 10 a.m. – Noon at the Worcester ECC Building (i.e. National Guard Building) at 50 Skyline Drive, Worcester. The course is free and open to all area hams and will go over NTS traffic writing, Net protocol and procedure and tactical messaging. Students are strongly encouraged to bring with them a notepad, pen and H-T. In addition to being a member of WECT, Ralph KD1SM, currently serves as one of our ARES ASM for WMA in addition is other affiliations. Ralph is also a regular NCS for CM2MN on Friday nights at 9 p.m. on the 146.970 Paxton Repeater. For details regarding the class check out our WECT website at http://www.wect.net.

If you are new to Emergency communications or just in need of a refresher this is a good beginners program from which to learn. We would appreciate a rough head count, so if you think you will be attending, please email me at wb1arz@aol.com.

Thanks and 73,

Mark, WB1ARZ
Director, WECT
