There were plenty of new terms and concepts that you came across as you studied for your FCC exam, but what do they really mean? Puzzled by simplex vs. repeaters? Can't tell a PL tone from an offset? And, how do I get on the air with my radio? If this sounds like you, then this class – An Introduction to Emergency Communications – will give you plenty of the basics about your new hobby with hands-on exercises that should get you started with Ham Radio and Emergency Communications. This is the first of two basic courses designed to get new hams familiar with some common operating procedures, emergency communications, and getting on the air. Attendees should bring their own printed copy of the course materials.  NO handouts will be available at the training.   Click here to see a printable flyer and the course materials (PDF format) CLASS SIZE IS LIMITED TO THE FIRST 30 THAT SIGN UP Location: Mtn.

We're currently investigating whether the alternate radio room operating position will be available on that date (it has other uses during non-emergency situations).  So we don't know yet if we will participate.

Do you know what you need in order to get started as a net control? This Fundamentals course covers basic operating principles that Santa Clara County hams responding as DSWs should know and understand. This is the second of two basic classes designed to get new hams feeling comfortable with city and county operating procedures. It is also an excellent introduction for experienced hams who are new to Santa Clara County operations and an excellent refresher for experienced Santa Clara County hams as well.

 Statewide Medical and Health Exercise (Hospital Drill)
WhenThu, Nov 15, 8:00 AM -
WhereVaries, see sign-ups
Description This is the annual Statewide Medical and Health Exercise (aka the annual Hospital Drill). Exercise Scenario:  This year, the scenario is an emerging infectious desease, an influenza-like illness (ILI).  The simulated scenario begins a month in advance of the functional exercise, with the first person presenting with flu-like symptoms.  As time goes by, more cases present and the situation becomes more severe, causing more players to become involved (simulated) and ramp up their operations.  By the time of the functional exercise, the problem is widespread and escalating. Participants:  SCCo hospitals, allied health organizations (skilled nursing facilities and clinics), and a variety of partner agencies, including law, fire, EMS, Red Cross and SCCo ARES/RACES/ACS.  Our Mission:  Although the exercise scenario is primarily focused on an infectious desease, the ability to communicate is clearly critical to being able to mount a response.  Loss of communications, due to some other disaster or simply due to equipment failure or human error would hamper abilities to response to the medical problem.  So, ARES/RACES will be part of the exercise.  We will exercise the communications path between the MHJOC and the various hospital operations centers in both directions. Schedule:  The functional exercise will take place on Thursday, November 15th.  As of now, the schedule is as follows.  Check back occasionally for any changes. 08:00 - Check in; set up station 08:45 - Briefing; station is set up and ready to go 09:00 - Exercise play begins; check into nets (voice, data) 12:00 - Exercise play ends; check out of nets (voice, data) 12:00 - Hot wash 13:30 - Adjourn; Check out Sign-ups:  Only sign up for a Hospital location if you have the appropriate credentials to access that facility.  Consult with the Hospital Net coordinator before signing up at the MHJOC.

This is the 13th Ham Cram put on quarterly by the Los Gatos/Monte Sereno ACS-RACES group as a service to all who wish to support their family and community in an Emergency (or Public Service Event).  It is an instructor-led Ham Cram with 6 instructors for the day.  The slides were originally created by the Saratoga Amateur Radio Assocation (SARA) and, of course, have been updated for the current 2018-2022 Question Pool.. There have been well over 250 graduates since 2016 with a 90% pass rate.  Attendees come principally from Santa Clara County, but have included participants from San Francisco, Alameda, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, San Benito and Sacramento counties. The class starts promptly at 08:00 and ends at 16:00 with lunch and other breaks.  The FCC Volunteer Examiners (SVVE.org) take over at 16:00 to conduct the FCC testing process. Help us spread the word to everyone who might benefit.  This is the last class in 2018.  There will be four in 2019. Link to the November 17, 2018 Ham Cram Class flyer

Description The 62th annual Los Gatos Children’s Christmas Holiday Parade will be held on Saturday,  December 1, 2018 in downtown Los Gatos. The parade starts at 11:00a and ends at approximately 1:30p. Again, this year, the Los Gatos-Saratoga Recreation Asso, LG Lions Club, and the LG/MS PD have asked the LG/MS ARES-RACES group to provide a cadre of hams for help in providing communications during the parade in case of emergencies, as well as to help locate lost parents, children, and dogs. This is an easy way to help out the community, enjoy the parade (over 200 "floats", and put a smile on all of us “kids”. We would like to field a team of at least 18 ARES Ham operators for this event. We usually have 9 from Los Gatos/Monte Sereno and 9 from other parts of Santa Clara County.  The positions include Net Control, Scribes, and Rovers. You will need a hand-held ham radio (5W output + spare battery). A better antenna than the standard “rubber ducky”, is recommended. Wear an ARES or similar bright green vest and dress in layers as it is cold in the morning but may warm up. This is a rain or shine event.  It has rained only once during the parade in 61 years. The streets are closed at 9:00a so parking becomes a challenge as the morning progresses. The Net Control station is at the Town Plaza (corner of Main St and N. Santa Cruz Ave).  We plan to operate out of the town's CERT trailer for the first time. In addition, we will have a pop up tent with chairs, water, etc. outside for R&R.  We will gather at the Net Control location at 10:00a for a briefing, last minute information and assignments. Have your radios programmed for the following frequencies:  * Resource Net = W6PIY 2m: 147.390 MHz, + offset, PL 151.4 Hz. * Primary Message Net = 441.000 MHz (LG/MS Tac3) PL 88.5 Hz * Secondary Message Net = 147.480 MHz (LG/MS Tac1) PL 88.5 Hz * Tertiary Message Net = 146.595 MHz (LG/MS Tac2) PL 88.5 Hz To sign up, "click" the box below.
