Prepper Events and Meetings / Re: Currently no reguar meetings?
« Last post by Rob McKevitt on October 27, 2019, 11:46:12 AM »

Sorry but we are not doing regular meetings in Reno any longer. The meetings we did for several years ran their course and we decided not to do them anymore. We do occasional events together and when we do those, we will post the information on this site. We are doing a weekly HAM radio net that serves as a means for those that want to participate to meet on the air and via the live stream and chat room to discuss Prepper topics. The Carson Valley Preppers Group was meeting in Minden/Gardnerville. I'm not sure if they still meet either.

Prepper Events and Meetings / Currently no reguar meetings?
« Last post by EamI on October 27, 2019, 10:31:33 AM »
I must admit that I haven't been motivated to attend regularly scheduled meetings but now I'm thinking that participating in that kind of activity is well justified.
 
Are there enough folks in the Reno to Minden/Gardnerville region that are interested in having occasional meetings to justify getting something going?

I believe these to be good links. You might shop around for better pricing. And always be aware of shipping costs.


Just my opinion.

Prepper Events and Meetings / Upcoming Technican Ham License Class
« Last post by davidham on June 05, 2019, 08:54:27 PM »
There will be a one day Technician FastClass at the NVCON Convention on July 19,20, & 21.  The Tech class will be held on Saturday, 7/20.  Preregistration is required!  Check in is at 7:30 a.m., the class will start at  8:00, run until about 3:30, and then test. 

David KD7YIM says "I've done about 25 of these classes and have about a 95% pass rate as long as people read the Gordon West book ahead of time" but adds that the pass rate is much lower if they don't read the book!

For complete info and to sign up, go to NVCON.org.  The class is $40 and there's an additional $15 test fee.  The Gordon West book is about $26; ordering info is on the website.
