EYEWARN NCS Training

 

Training for new Net Control Station (NCS) operators is scheduled for February 3rd at 8:00pm. This will be done by video conference using Zoom. NCS training is open to all club members. No pre-registration is required. Attendees are encouraged to check into the normally scheduled EYEWARN net at 7:00pm and attend the training afterwards at https://www.tinyurl.com/ccarc-zoom  

 

The Clark County Amateur Radio Club and the EYEWARN program fills a key position for our county's emergency coordinators in providing them visual situation reports during times of disaster or county wide emergencies. To make the program successful we need amateur radio operators that can manage a net and gather the information requested from our served agency. The only requirements for an NCS operator are to be a club member, have a technician or higher class license and the desire to volunteer in support of their community. For questions or additional information, contact Info@eyewarn.net .
