1)
  Hendricks ARES members not already assigned for the February 27th Family Assistance Center exercise are needed for a good operating experience that morning.  Duties will include taking down health and welfare messages to and from Hendricks Regional and I.U. West hospitals.  The assignment will be from 7 a.m. to noon at Danville High School.  If you are interested in sharpening the skills you will need as a trained amateur radio operator during a real disaster, contact Ron Burke KB9DJA at gunship@wildblue.net.


2)  The Fifth Annual Brownsburg Hamfest is now only eleven days away, on Saturday, February 13th.  Tables are only $10, or $15 with power.  One special feature will be a table where you can get help programming your HT.  More info on that next week, and the details on the hamfest itself can be found on the hamfest link on this webste. You can see the hamfest flyer by clcking HERE.


3)  The next hospital simplex net will be on the morning of Thursday, February 18th, at 9:30 a.m., on 147.57 MHz.

5) Ham license classes on Wednesday evenings began last week, but it is not too late to participate.  The classes are from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Senior Services Center in Danville, for Technician, General and Extra class licenses.  These classes are sponsored by the Hendricks County Amateur Radio Society.  More information is on the HCARS website, which is hcars.org.


6)  Mark your calendar for the Skywarn severe weather spotter training class in Danville.  It will be on Saturday, March 19th, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Hendricks County Government Center.  All hams and anyone interested in helping the National Weather Service identify severe weather are welcome.


7) Almost two-thirds of our 60 or so ARES members have their four NIMS certifications.  These are obtained through on-line classes as part of the FEMA training program.  If you need to complete one or more:  go to training.fema.gov/is and then use the keyword search to look for any of the four required courses:  100b, 200b, 700a and 800b.  You’ll need your student ID number, which you can obtain on that site.


8)  You and your station won’t be completely ready to serve in an emergency without a printed copy of the Hendricks County ARES Emergency Plan.  Remember, you can print your station’s copy of the Hendricks County ARES Emergency Plan.  You can vew and print it from this website, by clicking HERE.
