The ARRL Public Service Enhancement Working Group (PSEWG) has requested comments and suggestions from all Section Managers (SMs) and Section Emergency Coordinators (SECs) regarding the proposed ARES Strategic Plan by October 31, 2018.
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.

These operators were stationed at 19 locations across the Fargo / Moorhead area. They tracked progress of the races and passed other tactical traffic. Some of the operators are depicted in the RRRA Fargo Marathon 2018 photo album:
On April 28 a group of RRRA members—led by N0IPC—provided communication support in the vicinity of West Fargo Veterans Memorial Arena for the 2018 MS Walk.
