The Dayton Hamvention® reports that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will again offer its Auxiliary Communications (AuxComm) course in Dayton just before this year's Hamvention.
The course, offered by DHS's Office of Emergency Communications, "trains qualified amateur ration operators to assist their local, county and state governments with emergency backup communications," according to an announcement from the Dayton Amateur Radio Association. More than 1000 amateurs have already completed the course.
It will be offered from May 12-14, with a registration limit of 50 students. Details are available on the Hamvention website at < www.hamvention.org >.
