Army MARS : 11AM-Noon : Austin Room
Region 6 Army MARS is working with Texas amateur radio operators to support our national or state customers during a "bad day."
We are going to discuss what could happen during a bad day to our state, counties, and local communities.
Also what type of information might be requested from Army MARS national customers, and where we will go to obtain it from the amateur community.
