ACES Basic Emergency Communications Radio Operator Course Feb 18-19

Seattle ACS in conjunction with Oregon ACES, will be presenting the two day Basic ACES course on February 18 and 19 at South Seattle  College, Olympic Hall, Room 100.

This is an excellent basic emergency communicator course for amateur radio operators, and Seattle ACS has decided to make this a mandatory class for new ACS members. We are qualifying a number of people as instructors in this course, and will be offering it once or twice a year going forward to ensure all ACS members have an opportunity to take the class.

For further information, and to register for the class, please visit www.oregonaces.org

Thanks to the work of the City’s Radio Shop, and technical support from ACS members Frank, (K7RSD), Jeff (WB7AHT) and Tom, (N7OEP), It now has a newer and taller tower, new cabling and equipment, and a new cabinet to safely house everything! – Thanks to everyone who contributed to these projects!
