Here’s the latest issue of the ARRL ARES E-Letter for December 2016.  The issue covers several interesting topics plus some valuable ARRL/ARES links:

ARES Briefs, Links

Radio Amateurs Assisting in Wake of Indonesian Earthquake (12/9/16); Emergency Communication Exercise Uses “Hamsphere®” to Introduce Youth to Virtual Ham Radio (12/7/16); Amateur Radio Volunteers Providing Shelter Communication Support in Tennessee (11/30/16); Tennessee ARES on Standby in Wildfire Emergency, Local Amateur Radio Volunteers Assisting (11/29/16); Hurricane Watch Net Stands Down after Hurricane Otto Makes Landfall in Nicaragua (11/25/16)


The article on building a “Go-Box” is especially good.  Every radio amateur should have an emergency rig and antenna ready for portable operations. Most of the “Go-Box” materials can be found at the nearest hardware store or building supply outlet.
