WHERE: Zoom online - see below for information

WHAT: Messaging Handling Practice.

Speakers:
This is a team exercise coordinated by Paul (KI7VDA) and inspired by Carlos (AA7SB). Message handling is a radio operations 101 skillset but it's very important and we haven't had much chance to practice it over the last year. Like anything, it can become stale. So we'll practice during the Zoom session, providing constructive feedback to each other and highlighting the best examples of good practices.
Feel free to refresh yourself before the session using your favorite resources. Suggestions will be emailed in the week before the session.
