April Meeting

*** UPDATED 4/14/16 ***

The meeting will be on April 16th at 3pm. you can find directions to the meeting at this address.


1. On May 18th the state of Florida will have its yearly hurricane exercise. This SET (simulated emergency test) will involve the state, county and city EOC’s.

All 3 ARES section’s in Florida will participate  in this event. I should have more information from our section by this weekend and will be presenting this at the meeting. This is an important and large scale SET. We will be asking for volunteers as soon as I have more information. As more information comes in I will update this post and the Yahoo group.

2. This will be bring your go kit to the meeting day as well. AE4FH Faithhanna, KM4IPF Hope and WX4TVJ Zechariah made a portable go kit with VHF/UHF/HF capabilities and shown us how they built it at last month’s meeting.

I think this month will be a great opportunity for everyone to bring there go kits or if you don’t have one to come in and exchange ideas on how you can make your own.

3. James WX4TV will be setting up there portable station in the parking lot after the meeting with solar power and HF antenna. Please come by and takea look in person. It is a great setup to see.

If you have any questions please contact me.
