Cass County ID Badges

Cass County will be issuing new Radio Operator ID Badges for RRRA ARES participants. The issuance process for these badges includes a background check.

While these badges are not required for participation in ARES, they will be required for certain ARES deployment positions.

RRRA members interested in acquiring a Cass County ID Badge, and who did not complete the form distributed by KC0DCF at the May business meeting, must complete an ID Card Application and Background Check Consent form and return it at an upcoming business or ARES meeting.

Please contact with any questions.

Committee Members Needed for 2018 Hamfest

It’s time to start planning for the 2018 ARRL Dakota Division Convention and RRRA Hamfest. This is the largest Hamfest in North Dakota drawing attendees from 3 states and 1 Canadian province. Committee members are needed to plan and run this major fund raising activity for our club. Lots of volunteers will make the work easy for everyone. Planning meetings will begin June 10th.

The Hamfest Committee will use a mailing list for coordination and to assist the planning process. A shared folder is available to committee members at the RRRA File Sharing Server for document sharing and archiving.

Hamfest Committee volunteers are asked to subscribe to the hamfest mailing list so that they can stay informed and be a part of the conversation. Returning volunteers must re-subscribe to the hamfest list to confirm their participation. Volunteers may subscribe multiple addresses (e.g. work and mobile e-mail) if desired.
