SCCo / City Quarterly Drill County Radio Room Participants Sign-ups ONLY

This sign-up page is for those who wish to operate in the county radio room.

Purpose:  The purpose of this drill is to allow the Cities within Santa Clara County to exercise their local communications resources at the City level, and also participate on a County-Wide level exercise working the communications between the City Emergency Operations Centers and the SCCo Emergency Operations Center RACES Radio Room.

Radio Room Positions: 
Net Control and Packet Operator positions are available.  If you hold an N1 or P1 rating and if you haven't worked the county radio room, you're missing out.  It's sometimes frantic but always fun.  You can choose to be evaluated for a MAC qualification or not.  It's up to you.  Evaluations will be available for N2 and P2.  The Evaluation Team Leader will be contacting you prior to the drill to ascertain if you wish to be evaluated.
Command and EOC Net Control Operator positions are available.  If you are a MAC or better qualified and you want to work a net in the radio room but not on a net that is as busy as the Message Net, then this is the position for you.
Sim Cell Scribe and Runner positions are available.  If you are a SCCo DSW registered HAM and have not been in the County RACES Radio Room during an activation or a drill, but would like to see firsthand the activities, then please sign up for one of these two functions.

Field Positions:  Will not be available this drill.

Location:  Santa Clara County RACES Radio Room; Sheriff's Office Administration Building, 55 West Younger Ave., San Jose, CA.
