ON-AIR Training from members own QTH

Training in message procedures will be held on the 3 Wednesday evenings before each of the bi-monthly Training Days to ensure we're ready for the upcoming storm season.

[See table below for the upcoming on-air training dates]


In table format below are the remaining 2014 Training Dates and also information on the UHF Mt Watalgan Repeater used in On-air training sessions.

Message Handling training means that members will need to keep a supply of forms in their shack so please follow the links to the PDF documents which you can print each time you require a supply.


 

Additional resources will be added to this page as requested by members

 

The above links will take you to your area of interest or the document you're searching for. If you need assistance contact the WICEN Controllers from the contact information below

The forms are stored on this web server in pdf format for easy download and printing.

WICEN Members who participate in the On-Air training sessions from their own QTH are allocated a "Welfare ID".

This provides innocuous sounding station names for messages so the general public isn't alarmed by what they may hear on-air.
Members retain their station ID for the year and these become the "From" and "To" identities of the messages being sent.

The full list of 2014 allocated Welfare ID's can be found at: welfareID.pdf [214kb]


Want to LISTEN to how a message should sound? We have uploaded two MP3 files;

The first is how the Transmitting/Sending station should sound:

The second file is how the entire message would sound with both a Sender and Receiver
