Russ Ward W8ARD Appointed Training Officer

Post date: Jul 29, 2017 10:53:16 PM

I'm pleased to announce that Russ Ward W8ARD has accepted the position of Training Officer for the Central Ohio Traffic Net. He'll be joining a hard-working cadre of volunteers who make sure that COTN operates at least one session every day of every year.

With our relationship with Franklin County Emergency Management and Homeland Security, we need to ensure that we have a force of trained volunteers, ready to support the communication needs of the public and the agencies that serve them in times of emergency. Being a training net COTN is where many operators start their journey to become effective in critical functions like directed net operations and traffic handling. Russ will therefore be a critical resource.

If you've got ideas, questions, or comments that can help us to develop and deliver effective training in support of our mission I'm sure that Russ will be happy to hear about it. Please join me in welcoming him to his new position at COTN.
