UDF Training Continues on 27 October, 2016

In the month of October Squadron 150 members have focused on Urban Direction Finding (UDF) training for members seeking to become qualified UDF team members. Our first training in this series was held on Thursday 13 October, 2016 at our HQ at Los Alamitos JFT and was conducted by Maj John Hill Squadron 150 Emergency Services Officer and Maj John Frerichs who is the South Coast Group 7 Communications Officer.

The training concluded with a valuable exercise to locate a practice emergency locator transmitter (ELT) that had been activated and hidden (quite skillfully, we might add!) on base.

This week Majors Hill and Frerichs will continue our squadron's UDF training during the Squadron 150 meeting on Thursday 27 October, 2016. Majors Hill and Frerichs are some of the most experienced and qualified officers in South Coast Group 7 and California Wing in the areas of UDF and communications and we are fortunate to have their expertise.

If you're a communications enthusiast, have DF experience, or are simply interested in learning how to serve your community in Emergency Services, we invite you to attend of our squadron meetings to see what YOU could do in Civil Air Patrol!
