Hello BIARC List;
The newest Jan. CQ magazine has an article on Emergency Communications on p. 68-69.
Please look at the paragraph headed in bold on p. 69 saying:
“Is Emcomm Changing Roles?”  In case you don’t get the magazine, it briefly says during the LA fires, ARES was not activated because local hospitals were not in harm’s way.  Groups of ARES team members gathered and worked non-communications related tasks with other volunteers to accept 10 tons of pet food and thousands of boxes of human essentials such as soap, other hygene items.  Auxillary Communications Service Service (ACS) were tasked to deliver food and water supplies to LAPD fire crews.  It says briefly at the end of the paragraph that Red Cross employed amateur radio for several of its operations in the affected area. (but it didn’t seem like extensive use of radio – I understand much was because local fire repeaters were down in certain areas).
Notice no “ham radio” tasks… even for the ACS…
FYI.

Hawaii Island Amateur/Ham Radio Notes:

The Puna Emergency Radio Club needs licensed Hawaii Island radio amateurs to provide communications support for the Sunday, 17 March 2019, Big Island International Marathon in Hilo, Hawaii.  If you want to help, please call comms coordinator Sean Fendt (KH6SF) at 430-1884 or via email at sean@sfendt.net.

Doug Wilson (KH6DQ) is offering free Technician License classes on Hawaii Island.  The next class begins on Thursday, 14 March 2019, at the West Hawaii Civic Center in Kona, Hawaii.  The six-week course includes five training sessions, with licensing exams given on the final week.  Addition licensing classes are set for later in the year.  For details, contact Doug via email at douscelle@aol.com.

Alan Maenchen (AD6E/KH6TU) is taking registrations for his April 2019 online CW course.  According to Alan the class “is an on-line video chat meeting twice a week for eight weeks for an hour each.  Exact days and time could change depending on student availability.  Since this is an internet based virtual classroom, no commute is needed.  You can do this from home.  Technician class hams can participate and practice their skills on their 80, 40, 15, and 10 M CW allocations.”  For more information, please click this link:
