FIELD DAY 2012
Well it's that time again...
CARS will be operating up in Bear Valley for the entire FD weekend. We'll be in the upper parking lots of the ski resort. It's about a 75-minute drive up Highway 4 from Angels Camp. When you get to Bear Valley, stay on Hwy 4 for a mile or 2 until you see the turnoff to the ski resort on your left. We'll be a mile or so up that road.
We'll have a bbq about 5 PM. We'll be operating from 11 AM Saturday until 11 AM Sunday. Many of us will be camped from Friday night in the parking lot. We expect to have many modes in operation, CW, voice, HF digital (PSK-31, NBEMS Suite, WL2K), VHF Packet WL2k and voice. We may even try for a satellite contact or two.
Our FD site is near 8000' so being prepared for the elements is essential.

HOW CURRENT IS YOUR NIMS TRAINING?
By David Coursey, N5FDL
All ARES/RACES/ACS operators should take ICS-100, ICS-200, ICS-700, ICS-800, and the new ICS-802 course that describes the communication functions in the National Response Framework. Many of us should probably retake the ICS-100 and ICS-200 courses that were updated last summer. The ICS-802 course is new as of last August, so it is new to almost everyone.
If the course allows you to download the final exam questions, please do so. I will be much easier to follow the course and pass the exam, as the questions are sometimes unclear.

ARE YOU PERSONALLY PREPARED FOR AN EMERGENCY?
The American Red Cross can provide you with a lot of information to help prepare you in the event of an emergency.
“A simple kit of emergency supplies is invaluable in a disaster situation. Here's what the American Red Cross and Federal Emergency Management Agency recommend keeping handy in a large backpack, container or duffel bag.”
By clicking on this link you can find information on what should be in your personal “Emergency Kit” that just might save your and your loved ones lives.
In the future, I will be providing additional information on health, safety, and emergency communications on this CARS website that should be of interest to members, and visitors alike.
Your comments are welcome….
I found this on a New Jersey club's site. There are quite a few ideas that are worth reading. Some of the more technical details don't apply to our repeater, but many of the concepts do...or should.
What do you think?
Here's another article on the Amador club's jazzy new website:
Repeater Etiquette & Tips
The document posted on our site is a heavily modified version of the one on the 10-70 groups (New Jersey) page.
A New Format for WWV?
This isn't quite official...
