This week we have the opportunity to participate in a Webinar discussing Amateur Radio and AUXCOM support to the U.S. Department of Defense. Details of the Webinar are shown below as well as the Zoom link. Since this is an excellent opportunity for all of us to get in on the ground floor of these discussions and the future they hold for amateur radio support, David and I thought it would be beneficial and informative for all of us to attend.
Please note that this Webinar replaces both our ARES training and our regular Zoom meeting this week.
See you there!
