This excellent workshop from the El Dorado County Amateur Radio Club (EDCARC) was anchored by Alan Thomson and Robert Hess, two well-known and accomplished experts on alternative means of communication in an emergency. In recent years they have both dedicated their volunteer time to the establishment of GMRS Radio Nets in fire safe councils. If you want to understand how a “Radio Net” works using a Net Operations Controller, what skills one needs to work with a radio net, and how to inexpensively acquire the equipment you need to participate in our local radio net -- this video has those answers.
Though this video was developed for the Lotus/Coloma GMRS group by EDCARC, it deals with the establishment of a radio net that is exactly like the one in place for the Oak Hill Area GMRS organization.
This is a MUST SEE video for all residents in the Oak Hill Area FSC!
