Thursday WTX Section Zoom Meeting February 18, 2021

Zoom Meerting

Hello Everyone!

Wow!  Winter is here with a vengeance.  I hope all is well with you and you have power.  We lost power this morning and I have my trusty generator keeping us warm and toasty plus letting us have TV and the internet.  We don’t have use for a few appliances, but staying warm is the top priority.

This week we have the pleasure of having one of our own Steve Posner and Steve Waterman talk to us about the SHARES program and Winlink.

Below is an extract of what Steve Waterman will be discussing.

“More than ever, the U.S. Amateur Radio spectrum is under observation for use by commercial giants. We have just experienced this in the GHz range, and unfortunately, it is not over with yet. The ARRL does what it can to protect our Amateur frequencies, but there are other avenues to successfully maintaining our spectrum. Recognizing the issues the Amateur Radio operator faces, and the need for our services, the DHS CISA SHARES program advocates the use of Amateur Radio volunteer resources for the installation, operation and maintenance of its agency member stations. I plan to provide information about the CISA SHARES program and how you can become involved. Winlink radio email, which has been adopted by DHS for its use on its own HF/VHF spectrum, is an important tool in the processes and will be a part of the presentation.”

Please join us for this very interesting and informative program.
