I am very happy to announce that our next meeting will showcase Terry Stader, KA8SCP, who will talk about Emergency Communications in Eastern Massachusetts. Many of you follow this topic and even volunteer for emergency comm drills. Past presentations about EmComm have been great attractions and I hope the turnout for Terry’s talk will gather a crowd.
Terry is the MEMA Region 1 RACES Officer, as well as the EMA ARES District Coordinator for Region 1 RACES. Does that sound like alphabet soup to you? Then come and learn what each organization does!
If you want to explore ahead of time, the EMA RACES site is at: https://ema.arrl.org/races/ and the EMA ARES site is: http://www.arrl.org/ares
I hope to see you all there.
President, Billerica Amateur Radio Society
