Atlanta Flood Relief

Still up here in Douglasville running comm for the relief effort. Not much happening today. I ran the Comm Unit today and had radio operators at two other churches in the area. Bill-KJ4O headed home to Warner Robins after being here onsite for a full week. Less-K4OL worked all day then headed home before dinner. I have another operator that will be working here with me tomorrow. I'm planning to head back to Savannah either Sunday night or early Monday morning. Here are a few pictures.

Activated for Georgia Baptist Disaster Relief

I've been activated to support the continued cleanup effort in the Atlanta area due to the recent floods. I'm running communications support for the various units that are stationed at four different churches in the area. We are operating Communications Unit 14C stationed at Beulah Baptist Church in Douglasville.

I should be here for three or four days. I'll post more info and pictures as I have time.

Final Session of Technician Class and VE Session

Well, this past Thursday night we had the final 3 hour session of the current Technician Level License class that we started the first week of Sept. We covered License Regulations, Operating Regulations, and Radio Safety. We even had a little time to do some review and test prep. This has been a very good group of students and I felt good that everyone was ready for the test.

Most of the students gathered at the testing location on Saturday morning to take the exam. Several folks couldn't make it as they were out of town or had other commitments. The testing went very well and we now have five new technician class Amateur Radio operators and one new General Class operator! Congratulations to all. We look forward to hearing all of you on the air very soon. Callsigns should be issued over the next week or so.

Thanks to the following Volunteer Examiners for delivering the exam.
