Additionally, we would like you to read and understand the Colorado ECom material, written by Pat Lambert, W0IPL. While some of the references to organizations are no longer current (substitute ECom with ARES R3D2), the information regarding emergency communications is timeless. Please note that the embedded tests are no longer required, and the ARRL sponsored ARECC courses are also no longer required.
