  4. Presentation by Lauren Paolini of AT&T about First Net and how we, as emergency responder volunteers, can take advantage of it.
  5. Presentation by Scott Currie on APRS features and capabilities. Scott is known as THE APRS expert in the Pacific Northwest; this should be a lot of great information.                                                                                                            We look forward to seeing as many people as possible, recognizing that this will be the first full day of viaduct closure. Please plan your travels accordingly.
