This will be a MAC qualifying event and there will be a SCC RACES Activation.  We are seeking resources for all positions, including MAC's, MACs in Training, and any other operators that meet the position qualifications.

MAC Evaluations: There will be an opportunity for MAC evaluations as a shadow (S1or S2), field operator (F1), and net control operator (N1). 
Non-Evaluation positions:  There are as many non-evaluation positions that are available and need to be filled.

Resource Net Control Operators: Because this is a RACES Activation, we are also seeking Resources Net Control Operators.  Three (3) operators will be needed for three shifts: 0600-1000 hours, 1000-1500 hours, and 1500- approx. 1900 hours.  These are positions that can be and are better done from your home station.  The required linked repeaters will be up and linked.  You must be able to hit either W6ASH, AA6BT, or N6NAC with a clear strong signal to be able to conduct the net.
