Kaufman County ARES Letter 06/03/22

Kaufman County ARES Letter 06/03/22

Hello Team, This month we will be having what will be the first of our ARES meetings for 2022. Since we still don’t have a home repeater or physical location for our meetings we will conduct this months on Thursday 06/09/2022 at 7:00 P.M. local time on the Kaufman County ARES Discord Server.

Discord in is a place where we can do Voice, Text and Video similar to Zoom but it is free to use. If you don’t want to use your web browser there are client software for desktop, laptop, tablet, Windows, OS 10, Linux, Android and Iphone. You will need to verify when you get there. Just follow the instruction when you log on the first time. Will go through the new user list before we start the meeting and make sure everybody has their access level set.

This is a server invite. Just click the link and it will take you there without having to fool with anything else. https://discord.gg/aNuumrfw

We pretty much at the end of spring storm season in this part of the state. We can have severe weather anytime but the majority of severe weather happens for us in the spring and fall. I would suggest if you are interested in working with weather related nets over the summer and fall check out the hurricane watch website where you can get net frequencies and other useful information at https://hwn.org/

This month we say farewell to one of our Assistant EC’s Colten W2CEW. Colten is leaving us for Lindale Texas close to Tyler and we wish him luck are comforted knowing that he will be watching our east side for us. Thanks for being there Colten.

Before we go. Concerning this months meeting. If there is a training subject that you would like to address during the meeting please let me know in the next few days so I can try and get some training together or even better if you would like to do the training you are welcome to do so. Just let me know. Otherwise we will start with the basics and work our way up.

We do need to be looking for a location to have a monthly in person meeting at least until we are able to establish a regular net. We are still waiting to find out more about some potential repeaters that may be coming on line in the next few months.

Well that’s it for this time. Let me know if you need anything from me.
