READ ME FIRST - ZSARC Forum Introduction

Post by kyle » Sat Feb 21, 2009 4:32 pm

This section of the forum will be used for the Zombie Squad radio club. Any business matters related to the radio club, it's function, events it is holding or how to get involved can be posted in this section of the forum.

Please join the Zombie Squad Radio Club forum group if you are interested in updates on the club. You can add yourself to the group by changing your group settings in the User Control Panel here: http://zombiehunters.org/forum/ucp.php?i=167" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The Zombie Squad Radio club, unlike other ZS chapters, will not be region specific. The club will include radio operators within the Zombie Squad community as a whole. The club is currently in the initial planning stages. To get in on the ground floor of the club's planning and structure, jump on in!

Any general discussion about emergency radio, radio equipment or other general radio related stuff that is not directly related to the Zombie Squad radio club business needs to be posted in the ZS communications forum located HERE

If you're interested in learning more about radio communications, a good place to start would be checking out the following links:

Part 1 - Intro
Part 2 - Licensing
Part 3 - Equipment
Part 4 - Networking

Please do not post call-signs, or any other personal information, of other users without permission.

FYI: http://zombiehunters.org/forum/viewtopi ... 8#p1607578" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
The goal of the club will be to:

1) Promote/educate disaster communication to those interested in the ZS community
2) Organize radio communication related events both on and off the air (radio nets, ham fests, field days, etc)
3) Help chapter officers/members do the same in their areas on a local basis

I hoped to get this going and hand the reigns to someone else but it appears I'm not able to make the time to do it.

If there are individuals who are experienced with the technology and are willing to put in the time to get this club off the ground again, let me know. I can be reached at kyle@zombiehunters.org

I have some contact info of a few others who have expressed interest in getting this going as well. I am happy to put you in contact with each other. Someone needs to take up the leadership role to make sure it happens. I'm currently the point of contact for ZS-HQ and I will be happy to work with any folks who are up for it.

A good way to promote radio comms will be to stimulate discussion on the forum and to put together articles for our upcoming ZS Blog (Jan/Feb 2011). If you would like to submit an article let me know.

Suggestion: Having your callsign in your sig would call attention to amateur radio, and possibly get more ZS members interested. At the very least it lets fellow hams know who you are.

In.
Due to repeated abuse and ego raging from ZS moderators, and no more mature adults to which chapter officers can appeal, ZSC:029 has been permanently dissolved.

I'd never ask members to accept that kind of institutional mistreatment, and you shouldn't sign up for it in the first place.

Question: I've looked (but not too hard) and I'm not seeing any real "How To" area on the site, with step-by-step directions for doing things or making things. I'm about to build a batch of dual band (2m/70cm) aluminum open stub J-poles (similar to the Arrow brand aluminum J-Pole) that I give to new hams, friends, etc. and I could, if anyone was interested, take plenty of photos of the process and post a "How To..." thread giving complete directions on how to make one yourself. The only problems with the idea is, A) where such a thread is best posted and, B) would there be any interest?

Comments? Suggestions?

When I didn't get any response after a few days I assumed there was no interest. I've already started the batch I'm building but didn't take any photos yet. I'll see what I can do...

I passed my Technician. I missed the General by three but I am surprised that I passed anything at all as I had so much BS happening this week.None-the-less, I made Technician just waiting for my call sign to get on the net. I will study to pass my General and Maybe Extra for next month.
