Jon Dickason will make a presentation/discuss how the local ARES/RACES organization provides communications for public service events, exercises and local disasters, how we use APRS to do real time tactical mapping for these events, and how we create our own wireless Intranet using easily modified consumer wifi routers. RACES also regularly practices with Dept. of Homeland Security, FBI, ARMY, border patrol, etc., and local law enforcement.
