Recording of meeting


Jim gave a brief history of the role of the Section Manager and the evolving role of the NTS (National Traffic System.)  He complimented Tim Howard and the county training program and also stressed the value of CERT training.  In the 2021 Firestorms, he said that amateur radio operators used mostly 2 meter and 440 bands to communicate (not HF), and were mainly deployed for animal rescue units.  Jim stressed the importance of getting direction from local officials to learn what is needed – never self-deploy.
