For the second time in recent history, the Auxiliary Communications
Workshop is being offered in the Oklahoma Section.

"This class is designed for those auxiliary emergency communicators and
groups who volunteer to provide backup emergency radio communications
support to public safety agencies. Typically this includes amateur
radio and Radio Emergency Associated Communications Team (REACT)
communicators but may include other volunteer emergency communicators.

This course focuses on auxiliary communications interoperability the
relationship between the COML and the volunteer emergency operations
center (EOC) etiquette on-the-air etiquette FCC rules and regulations
auxiliary communications training and planning and emergency
communications deployment. It is intended to supplement and standardize
an operator's experience and knowledge of emergency amateur radio
communications in a public safety context."

The Office of Homeland Security is offering reimbursement for travel
costs to those who are over 60 miles from the class site.

The class can be offered every two years.  Seating is capped at 30
students.  Please visit

to enroll.  One will need a Homeland Security user name and password. 
To obtain one, visit
https://www.ok.gov/homeland/login/register.php

The class, when offered last, was well-attended.  Because of the
conflict with the Enid Hamfest, however, not everyone was able to
attend.  This year, the date was carefully chosen to not interfere with
ARRL functions in the Section.

Please tell your friends of this valuable, yet no cost to the
participant, training in the Oklahoma Section.
