The second-Saturday Digital Workshop is changing. The first change is moving the training from the Spokane County Fire Training Center, to the Spokane County DEM Building at 1121 W. Gardner Ave, Spokane, WA 99260. The next change is in what is covered. Previously, the workshop has focused primarily on digital comunications using Winlink. Now that we have several people familiar with Winlink, the group will be expanding the topics covered, -and- include non-digital topics such as antenna theory, how to build an HF station and more.
Anyone interested in various topics related to Amateur radio and how they fit in the ARES architecture are invited to attend. We will continue to have specific topics to cover and might break the workshop into more than one group as the need arises to provide more focused attention on different topics. If a new topic comes up during a workshop, we will look to put it on a later agenda.
The April 14th workshop will take a look at the new Winlink formats of ARDOP and VARA that look promising as Winmor replacements. Watch for more detailed announcements through the Groups.io emails.
