Communications Training During This Week's Meeting

Yes, Civil Air Patrol (CAP) is well known for our airplanes, aircrews and ground team functions; yet without the ability to communicate with one another, we wouldn't be able to perform our missions. This is where the valuable CAP communications team enters in! Our communicators make it possible to direct CAP's members to where we need to be, to monitor the safe operation of everyone involved, and to disseminate information, no matter the situation.

Our squadron meeting this week (14 June, 2018) will be a training exercise which will simulate actual mission conditions to give our members hands-on experience operating the radios, communicating with crews and performing the various tasks that our communications personnel would do during a mission.

Our thanks to Maj. John Frerichs for facilitating this training!
