Hillsboro Basic Class Wrap-up

The winter 2011 offering of the ACES basic course was sponsored by the Hillsboro EOC amateur radio team.  The typical Hillsboro and Beaverton students were joined by colleages from Multnomah County ARES and the City of Gresham.  Skill levels ranged from "very experienced" to those that made their first amateur transmission as part of the course.  Represented agencies included ARES/RACES units, city EOCs, and multiple CERT organizations in the metro area.  Three of the lessons were taught by guest instructors, one of which being the City of Hillsboro Emergency Manager.
