The AARC was privileged to host the August meeting of Alaska Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) at the Radio Science and Operations Center (RSOC) today. It was a great turnout, with 21 people in attendance. In addition to conducting the important business of AK VOAD, the group was generous and allowed us to explain our role, as a club and as ARES in disaster situations. In addition to the normal attendees, there are additional visitors from the State of Alaska Emergency Operations Center and even one visitor from FEMA Region X.
The RSOC continues to be outfitted to be ready in case of disaster, for education, experimentation, contesting, DXing, and just plain fun. How can you help? Drop a note to firstname.lastname@example.org to check in. Remember, we have Working Wednesday’s from approximately 1800 – 2100, and typically have the RSOC open on Saturdays from @ 1000 – 1500.
