The Guest Speaker
For The November 2014 Meeting Was Paul Womble

We had a record turnout for Paul Womble’s presentation. By most counts there were seventy-five in attendance. Paul K4FB is the Program Manager for Polk County Emergency Management. His presentation covered both his responsibilities and that of his agency. Amateur radio operators have a special role in times of emergency. Paul suggested, among other things, first and foremost, to be prepared yourself, have a plan, and keep sharp on your radio communication skills. Know your equipment, and make sure you can manage simplex, should the repeater systems go down.
