  • ARRL Field Day and Free Ham Radio License Testing

    Hogan Baptist Church

    Everyone is welcome to join us. ARRL Field Day is the single most popular on-the-air event held annually in the US and Canada. On the fourth weekend of June of each year, more than 35,000 radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups or simply with friends to operate from remote locations. Field Day is a picnic, a campout, practice for emergencies, an informal contest and, most of all, FUN! It is a time where many aspects of Amateur Radio come together to highlight our many roles. While some will treat it as a contest, other groups use the opportunity to practice their emergency response capabilities. It is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate Amateur Radio to the organizations that Amateur Radio might serve in an emergency, as well as the general public. For many clubs, ARRL Field Day is one of the highlights of their annual calendar. The contest part is simply to contact as many other stations as possible and to learn to operate our radio gear in abnormal situations and less than optimal conditions. We use these same skills when we help with events such as marathons and bike-a-thons; fund- raisers such as walk-a-thons; celebrations such as parades; and exhibits at fairs, malls and museums — these are all large, preplanned, non-emergency activities. But despite the development of very complex, modern communications systems — or maybe because they ARE so complex — ham radio has been called into action again and again to provide communications in crises when it really matters. Amateur Radio people (als o called “hams”) are well known for our communications support in real disaster and post -disaster situations. Free testing for the Amateur(Ham) Radio License will be at 2 PM and ending at 4PM. Pre-registrations appreciated. Walk-ins accepted. More information at www.JaxLaurel.com and https://www.facebook.com/jaxlaurelve. Please make sure you register for a FRN prior to testing (directions at www.JaxLaurel.com).

We are planning the local Insider Dev Tour in Jacksonville, FL for Tuesday, June 25, 2019. The event (http://insiderdevtour.com/) is a “mini version” of Microsoft’s BUILD conference (http://build.microsoft.com) focusing on “M365” technologies (Windows, Office, …). It is a one day, high-energy event, distilling and condensing what was new at BUILD for local audiences. With a one hour keynote and talk lengths of 25 minutes, the content is on-topic and focused. A few important facts: Audience is anybody interested in software development trends and technologies on the Microsoft platform (focus on Windows and Office 365) It’s a day long free event. Time approximately 8:00 am-5:30 pm, with the intention to do talks from 9:00 am-5:15 pm. Event is initiated by Microsoft, but run by community volunteers worldwide Quality content provided by Microsoft Corporation Delivered by a mixture of local speakers and some Microsoft speakers Event will be lightly branded (in the style of the http://insiderdevtour.com website) No external sponsors or external branding, which reduces potential conflict of interest Catered Food / Beverages A Code of Conduct exists and will be enforced Registration will start May 31, 2019. You can help in various ways: Help to recruit potential speaker candidates in your network, company, or in local communities and at events. This is very time sensitive Help to recruit volunteers for registration, day of event logistics Help to spread awareness in your communities and networks for attendance (starting in early May when the registration pages go up at http://insiderdevtour.com ) About speaking at the event: Attached find an Excel list of sessions and abstracts that we want to cover, a few of them we MUST cover Speakers please send us an email with the session numbers you believe you can cover, the level of comfort with the material, and your order of preference. If possible please indicate if you believe you can cover more than one session. Speaker candidates will have to provide - Speaker first name - Speaker last name - a short biography (2 – 4 sentences) - photograph (.jpg) – 400x400 resolution or direct link to download such picture - Twitter handle if applicable (@) - other social links if applicable … and permission to the event organizers and Microsoft to publish this, or contact us about information what we cannot publish If we get enough speakers and space, we aim at trying to do two tracks in parallel in the afternoon The session content will be provided by Microsoft: PowerPoint, Demos, Demo scripts and will be available in late May. Speakers must commit to practice, including to strictly stay within the time limits Great opportunity for new speakers to get their first “speaking wings” as the content will be prepared and provided Students or young professionals are encouraged to reach out Inexperienced speakers are welcome to speak and will benefit from doing example practice deliveries (video/Skype) – at least one being required We specifically welcome speakers from communities who are less represented speaking at technology events and are committed to help those to succeed. It is possible that a specific session does not happen because of us not being able to have two parallel tracks; or not getting enough speakers to support two full tracks. Rehearsal dinner tentative for June 24. We can entertain a limited amount community content proposals, both technology or “soft skills” types of talks. The requirement is that all content that is not from Microsoft needs to be reviewed and approved by Microsoft Corp two weeks before the event.
