In this course, we will introduce you to all the ways Amateur Radio operators are using digital technology as a valuable emergency communications tool. The topics discussed during the course include:
We’ll help you answer questions such as:
Can you transfer supply lists or personnel assignments between emergency operations sites?
Can you get critical e-mails to the Internet if a connection goes down?
Can you relay digital images of damage at specific locations?
Can you track the locations of emergency personnel and display them on computer maps?
Illustrations, screenshots, Internet links and audio files are used to demonstrate transmission modes and equipment configurations. Bite-sized learning units and interactive knowledge checks make learning interesting and fun!
