Comments submitted during the year :

1/2018: ALPINE, KA7AJQ, Sheila Clement: 2018 January Alpine/Douglas Comment In addition to our nets and meeting, members spent much time on packet operations and discovery, antennas, 911 radio repair and personal equipment repair. Also, members are working on the SIERA emergency radio trailer, available to DCART. Jeff, K7BCV is going to be offering a radio class through Western Nevada College. And I registered both Alpine and Douglas Counties for our organization numbers for ARRL ARES. At our February meeting we plan to cover GPS on a cell phone and how to use it to locate your position. There has been discussion about needing cell towers. The cell phone works both off satellites and cell towers so some variables to discuss. Sheila Clement, KA7AJQ ARES Emergency Coordinator Alpine and Douglas Counties

2/2018: ALPINE, KA7AJQ, Sheila Clement: 2018 February Alpine/Douglas Comment At our February DCART meeting we discussed GPS in relation to our own 911 Dispatch Center and our smart cell phones and tablets. Dispatch prefers that rural or field locations information be given in decimal degrees as time is lost to convert from lat & long. Our Douglas County 911 Dispatch Center is looking forward to the installation this spring of the Next Generation 911 system that will include texting. The motto will be, "Call if you can. Text if you can't." This installation will address previous technical challenges and include an updated antenna system for our ham radio desk equipment. Also, our Douglas County Comm Tech, K5BLS, installed a Fusion radio at our 911 station that added more frequencies (digital and analog) that are coordinated through the area Fusion repeater systems. Sheila Clement, KA7AJQ ARES Emergency Coordinator Alpine and Douglas Counties

3/2018: ALPINE, KA7AJQ, Sheila Clement: 2018 March Alpine/Douglas Comment Our Douglas County Amateur Radio Team (DCART) studied Radiograms during our monthly meeting. KA7FOO, Doug, presented a very informative session. DCART members continue to enjoy special projects. Some of those follow. KE7NCJ, Tom, is coordinating schedules and planning for the Pony Express ReRide support communications in June for the SIERA group. K7BCV, Jeff, is finishing his technician class with WNC and may do a General this summer. His website is http://www.k7bcv-radio.tech. KD7NHC, John, reports great fun with drone training for SAR in Lyon County. Several members, N7XYL, Debbie, K6VOC, Bob, K6LR, Jim, KJ6IX, Dale, KJ7UK, Dick, and KI6EWK, David, continue support for our packet radio operations, including for our own 911 station. They also work with the SIERA communications trailer. KI7CTT, Sue, and N7BBE, Ben coordinate information flow and training notes with SIERA (Sierra Intermountain Emergency Radio Association). N7TNX, Dave, and KA7UIS, LeRoy participate with the weekly Northwestern Nevada Hospitals nets at either our Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center station or the Carson Tahoe Specialty Medical Center station and work their packet stations. N7TNX,Dave, works with the station at DEM. (Nevada Division of Emergency Management). KV7S, Dale, keeps our 911 station working and works with county communications. Our other members support us quietly in the background. Sheila Clement, KA7AJQ ARES Emergency Coordinator Alpine and Douglas Counties
