    Amateuur Radio Opporators Needed

    Description of volunteer position(s) available:

    If you are an amateur radio operator and looking for something different to do during shelter operations we can help.



    What will you need?

    You need a valid amateur radio license and a willingness to help others following the guidelines established by the American Red Cross


    What will you be doing? You will be providing the shelter manager, or designee, a communication link to the Operations Center or other services if phones are not available while the shelters are open. You may do other duties if you want as long as you can do this primary duty when required. Other duties are not required!


    What will I need? You will need to have a radio(s) and power supplies to function for a minimum of 16 hours (you hopefully would not work that long). You should have digital communications capability such as a computer with “Winlink” installed but that is a recommendation, not a requirement.


    Who do I answer to? On location, you answer to the shelter manager for the shift. Your Net Control Operator will be at the Operation Center or could be working from another location depending on the situation. Because of the nature of your job, there will always be someone at the other end of your radio.
