Bodies Needed!

Okay so maybe not your body- but your voice is needed to do the Net Control for the Saturday AM Swap Shop on the 146.76 repeater.  Training will be provided.  All it take is a good signal into the SLP 76 repeater site and able to hear back. Scripting is provided and being able to think and write helps. Do you have what it takes?
I am also looking for individuals with Metroskywarn experience to become an NCS supervisor during weather nets.
Please contact me if you have the experience and can command during extreme weather.
Contact Mike – president@tcfmc.org

Ham Radio serves communities providing emergency communication operations in times of hazardous weather and civil discourse.  The mission of Twin Cities FM Club is to serve the community during these emergencies; to educate new and existing operators with emerging technologies; to provide local repeater frequencies for free communications. We do a weekly amateur radio news, information and over the air swap net. We develop processes for the betterment of the local ham radio community, through education programs and public invited events. We work with cities and county agencies on emergency communications and assist with event communication support.
