Latest additions to the BC ARES website

Hello, everyone!

KEØLMY here.

We have some new additions to the BC ARES website to tell you about today. We’ve added a link to the Winlink website on our Quick Reference Guide. We are in the process of creating a step-by-step tutuorial and will post it on the Training tab when it has been completed. We have also added a link to the Missouri Section ARES Emergency Operation Plan on our Emergency Services tab.

More information, photos, updates to the EC Blog and Kids Editorial, and graphics are in the works!

Don’t forget the Region A Healthcare net takes place at 9:30 AM this Wednesday on the Warrensburg repeater, 146.880 (-) PL 107.2. We are trying to grow this important resource to support local hospitals and healthcare facilities in the region through amateur radio operator participation. All hams are encouraged to check in after the hospitals and healthcare facilities!
