ARROW Mobile Portable Team: AMPteam outings are a great way to hone up on your skills while getting together with friends!
We meet at a different public location (announced in the calendar) on the third Monday of each month, and try out new gear, show off new tricks, or just rag chew. We also take the chance to talk about amateur radio with anyone who comes by to ask…
Purpose: AMPteam Outings take place once every month all year long, rain or shine. We gather at a common location, set up and operate portable HF, VHF, and Microwave stations. This provides an opportunity to hone our skills in rapid and efficient deployment of Amateur Radio stations into the field in what are oftentimes non-optimum conditions.
Readiness: Regular practice results in better preparedness to respond to deployments in any times of emergency. By participating you will improve your skills for events such as OHR, POTA, SOTA, Red-Cross Shelters, SHTF, etc. And this better prepares us for the annual “Field Day” event.
Go-Kits: Our “Go-Kits” get better and better each time we do an AMPteam Outing. We get better at not leaving items behind and assuring that we have everything we need to make a deployment. A certain degree of “competition” naturally occurs as team members strive to create the best Go-Kit, ever! 🙂
Having something to set up is NOT a requirement. Simply come on out to mingle, exchange ideas, learn, and to just have FUN!!! When 8pm rolls around, we all check in to the ARROW Monday Night Net on the 146.96 MHz repeater.
