SLSRC September Meeting and Program: “The Challenges of Moving, Ham Style”

September 22, 2020….

The program for the September 25th meeting is on “The Challenges of Moving, Ham Style” by Peter Brisbine NM5PB. 

Peter/NM5PB (previously NØMTH) obtained his Novice call in 1988 and progressed to Amateur Extra in 2014. He has spent the majority of his time in ham radio working in the emergency services and public service disciplines; from providing support while living in Cedar Rapids, March of Dimes fundraising walks, assisting with Fourth of July celebrations, working the Flood of 1993 and as net control for various Skywarn nets.

He has served both as a Cadet and a Senior member in the Civil Air Patrol where he continued building out Iowa’s HF Packet Network in the mid-90s to link Cedar Rapids with Des Moines in support of CAP’s operational missions.

After spending the last 20 years in St. Louis, he volunteered as an Assistant Emergency Coordinator for Digital Operations & Training with St. Louis Metro ARES/RACES for the past seven years prior to relocating to Albuquerque, New Mexico with his wife Janelle/NM5JB (previously NØMTI) in May of this year. Both Peter & Janelle currently volunteer with the Bernalillo County ARES group and are members of the Upper Rio FM Society. If you’re traveling through New Mexico, you can find them on the New Mexico Megalink.

Peter and Janelle were previous members of SLSRC, and Peter continues to provide remote support for the Cliff Cave VE Team.

His presentation will cover the experiences of relocating an amateur radio station, administrative changes, maintaining a remote station, and experiences getting settled into a new location and reaching out to local groups during challenging times.

The September SLSRC general meeting will be held ON-LINE Friday, Sept 25 at 7:00 pm, streaming starts at 6:45.
