Welcome to Communications Academy!

Our 20th Annual Communications Academy will be held on: April 14th & 15th, 2018

Due to the overwhelming popularity of this year's sessions, we regret to inform you that:
**** We are COMPLETELY SOLD OUT on Saturday! ****

Walk-In Registration is still available for Sunday Only on a first-come/first-serve basis!

Program changes:

As life intervenes at times, we have run into a snag in the schedule for two sessions. Presenter Terry Pietras, from Oregon RACES, has had a family emergency, and will be unable to participate at this academy. As a result Ward Silver has graciously agreed to take his Session 8 slot on Saturday at 1330 hours, and will be presenting "Grounding & Bonding for Little Pistols & Medium Guns". Terry's Session 25 slot on Sunday at 1330 will be filled by Joseph Cirone W1SPY on the very same topic "Winlink Hybrid Radio Email Network on HF SHARES"

Also: due a last minute illness, on Sunday Joe Blaschka's Session #19 "Understanding Receivers - Specs & Performance" will be replaced by Scott Honaker, N7SS "Basic Networking for the Radio Amateur "

These changes are reflected on the "Event Schedules" available now on the
2018 Event Schedule page!

Congrats to last years Survey winners!:

2018 Go-Kit Display...uh....Contest?

This year, we are re-introducing a newly revamped and semi-organized
Go-Kit Display....uh....Contest.

In keeping with this year’s theme, "Don’t Panic!", we are offering interested attendees an opportunity to showcase their individual or group technical proficiency, scientific knowledge, tactical fluency and all things that operate or support the utilization of the radio frequency spectrum for communications.

“Ghastly, isn't it? All the doors on this spaceship have been programmed to have a cheery and sunny disposition..” - Marvin, the robot.

The theme for 2018's Academy will be:

"Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experiences of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so." – Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

Communications Academy is two days of training and information on various aspects of emergency communications. Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES©); Auxiliary Communications Service (ACS); EOC Support Teams; Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES), Civil Air Patrol, Coast Guard Auxiliary, REACT, CERT and anyone interested in emergency communications should attend. Learn, network, and share your experiences with others.

The Communications Academy is open to anyone with an interest in emergency communications, volunteer or professional. The presentations are designed to promote the development of knowledgeable, skilled emergency communicators who will support their local communities during a disaster or emergency response.
