Event description

Description

The 19th Annual Wisconsin State ARES/RACES Conference and ARRL Convention will be held on Saturday, October 21, 2017. Come and learn about operating digitally as ARES/RACES members! We will have sessions on using digital voice modes on VHF/UHF, digital modes on HF, and linking of analog and digital modes. That's a lot of digital!

Be prepared to learn about new ways of logging your events or activations and how it can help you as an ARES/RACES operator. In addition, there will be a review of the 2017 SET. What did we learn from the SET, and how do we improve on the ever-evolving relationship with our served agencies? As always, there will be plenty of time for ham radio camaraderie during lunch, a fashion show of ARES/RACES apparel, and chance to win fabulous door prizes! Yes, we are once again a designated ARRL-sanctioned event! Join us as we reconnect and remind ourselves just how important we are as volunteers in our communities.

The Conference Committee feels fortunate that we can hold our free conference in such a beautiful facility in Wisconsin Rapids. Therefore, we feel it is important to give back to the Wisconsin Rapids community, so we have a local non-profit organization serving lunch at the conference. Please make a difference and help us give back! The proceeds raised will go directly toward their scholarship program for their youth and adult members.

Following the conference at 5 pm there will be more time to socialize at the Lake Aire Supper Club, in Wisconsin Rapids. We have found Lake Aire Supper Club to be the best place to relax and network after the conference. Check out their menu on-line http://www.lakeairesupperclub.com. Let us know when you register if you are interested in joining us.

Thanks,
Wisconsin ARES/RACES Conference Committee
