Meeting Highlights
Amateur Radio Emergency Service
In the event of a catastrophic disaster when the infrastructure in Lake Oswego (LO) and in Waluga Neighborhood is so severely damaged is the only way we have to communicate with our neighbors and the “outside world” is with two- way radios? Alas! There is another type of radio service available where the operators will be doing double duty to insure that the City has reliable back up communication system. Lake Oswego is fortunate to have an active amateur radio emergency service program. One licensed member is our own E.P. coordinator in Trillium Woods, Chris Battista. He will be sharing with us the basics of the radios, the amateur radio services in LO and explain how this service will be vital to our neighborhood during a disaster.
