Ohio ARES Conference: "The Changing Face of Traffic Handling"

Post date: Mar 30, 2017 9:59:55 PM

ARRL Ohio Section will hold its ARES Conference on Saturday, April 1, 2017. (No joke!)

Starting at 8 A.M., Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) volunteers from around the state will gather at Marion Technical College / OSU - Marion Campus, 467 Mt. Vernon Avenue, in Marion. With a program getting underway at 9 A.M., we will consider topics ranging from training to technology, and operations to messaging.

Our own net manager, C. Matthew Curtin KD8TTE will present "The Changing Face of Traffic Handling." In that presentation we will consider handling third party traffic and its role in emergency and disaster response. We will also hear from the president of the Ohio EMA Directors Association on how amateur radio and EMAs can help one another.
