The State HF Sound Card Net survey has been completed and results sent for evaluation.
Participation in the twice-monthly State HF Sound Card net has fallen significantly and an initiative is underway to increase the number of Colorado ARES members utilizing this capability.
A brief survey has been prepared to identify the level of membership awareness of the State HF Sound Card Net and potential roadblocks to improving net participation.
As stated earlier, this survey is quite brief and should take approximately 2-3 minutes of your time. All members are encouraged to complete the survey, not just members who have participated in the HF Sound Card Net previously.

The Colorado AuxComm Unit anticipates continuing to support Rio Blanco County as they host the Rally America 2020 Rally Colorado. We are planning to execute this as an exercise, validating AuxComm capabilities.
Racing will take place 15 and 16 August in Rangely, Colorado. (Plan for travel days both the day before and the day after the event!)
This will be the 4th year the amateur radio community in Colorado has assisted with this event. Your participation is critical to the safety and success of Rally Colorado. Rally America has graciously worked with us to schedule around the 2020 HamCom dates to ensure we will have adequate staff available for this event.
As all who have participated in Rally Colorado in the past know, this is a fun event.

Have you ever wondered how emergencies like the Bomb Cyclone are handled at the City and County of Denver?
The Denver Office of Emergency Management will host an Open House of the Emergency Operations Center (EOC). This event is for the public. This is a unique opportunity to meet with emergency personnel who help “Save the City”.
Amateur radio operators from the Montrose Amateur Radio Club and
the American Legion Amateur Radio Club Post 73 are participating in the
upcoming Museum Ships Weekend amateur radio event by putting the USS Montrose
Memorial on the air. Members of both clubs will operate an amateur radio
station from near the memorial on South First Street, Montrose on June 1 and 2,
2019 as part of the world-wide event sponsored by the Battleship New Jersey
Amateur Radio Station. This is the second year that the USSS Montrose
Memorial will participate in this event.
The event encourages ham radio operators around the world to
contact as many of the participating museum ships as possible, learn the
history of the ships contacted, and commemorate both the ships and those who
served upon them. There are currently over 100 ships from around the
world participating in the event.
The USS Montrose Memorial, consisting of the ship’s bell and an
interpretative plaque, is located adjacent to the Montrose City Hall. The
amateur radio station will be located across the street from the memorial and
just west of the Montrose Police Department.
While the station will continue to operate during the night, the
public is encouraged to visit the station during the day Saturday and
Sunday. There will be an opportunity to learn about the USS Montrose, its
history of service during World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, and to see amateur
radio in operation.
