Club Log is the first logging service to achieve Trusted Partner™ status for Logbook of the World® (LoTW). This means that LoTW users (i.e. Hams who have acquired an LoTW certificate) are now able to upload directly from Club Log to LoTW (with integrated QSL signing) rather than having to seperately upload their logs to both services.
Seven amateur radio operators (hams) are needed to provide communications support for Walk MS: Fargo 2017 on April 29th, 2017.
Our served agencies are accustomed to utilizing direct (i.e. person-to-person) and virtually instantaneous communications to conduct their operations. These means of communication (e.g. the telephone, email with attachments, and instant messaging through a wide variety of platforms) depend upon extensive, and often fragile, infrastructure which can be disrupted during incidents ranging in scale from a localized fiber-optic cable cut to regional severe weather events.
As past FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate, KK4INZ, said in Ham Radio Now Emcomm Extra #8, when an incident occurs “they just want their email to work.”
Traditional public service (aka Emcomm) messaging often does not meet the expectations of today’s served agencies (our customers). Amateur Radio operator typically utilize indirect communication paths with paper forms for origination / delivery and transcription style transfer methods (e.g. voice or CW); this does not provide the style of communication preferred by our customers.
