An Auxiliary Communications (AUXCOMM) course will be held on February 25 – 26 at the Sauk Valley Community College in Dixon, IL. This course is designed for auxiliary communicators who volunteer to provide backup emergency communications support to “public safety” agencies.
This course focuses on auxiliary communications interoperability, the relationship between the COML and AUXC volunteers, emergency operations center (EOC) etiquette, on-the-air etiquette, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules and regulations, auxiliary communications training and planning, and emergency communications deployment. The course is intended to supplement and standardize a volunteer operator’s experience and knowledge of emergency amateur radio communications in a public safety context. Course materials and the AUXC Position Task Book will be provided to students via digital download prior to the course start date.
This course is two days long (up to 10 hours each day) and is limited to 30 students.
