Hook and Ladder Fire Truck Muster

Mile High Hook and Ladder Fire Muster

Practice your radio skills. Denver ARES will be setting up a command center (DMR and simplex) and provide mobile patrols during the parade and fire muster. There will be DMR radios available and training will be provided. If you want to be part of the parade, show up by 8 a.m. at the ARES booth, in the vendor area. Set up starts a 7:30 (hint, hint). Map coming soon.

The event begins with a fire truck parade at  9 a.m. sharp, departing from the intersection of S. Bannock St. and Littleton Blvd.  In honor of Littleton Fire’s rich firefighting legacy, LFR’s classic white 1914 Federal Chemical Truck will lead the noisy procession of antique rigs and modern in-service fire-rescue apparatus as it rolls west down Main Street, turns south on S. Curtice St., then “musters” (gathers) from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Arapahoe Community College (ACC), 5900 S. Santa Fe. Visit the website for all the activities available during the muster – too many to list here.

Sunday Radio School – DMR

We will review the basics of setting up and operating using DMR radios.

DMR Time Slots allow two independent conversations on the same frequency at the same time.

Before the training:

  • Check out the excellent Intro to DMR provided by RMHam
  • You will not need a radio ID for either the training or the hands on, We have ‘loaner’ radios.
  • If you are planning on using your own DMR (or are planning on getting one in the future) you will need a DMR Radio ID.

This will be a hybrid training session, both in-person and virtual.

Mike Lozano (K0NGA) from Rocky Mountain Ham  will provide an overview of DMR and details about the RMHam linked repeater system. This will be a hybrid training session, both in-person and virtual.

The hands on phase will include using the Central (tentative) talk group and HTs to relay messages from Denver and Adams/Arapahoe out to the eastern plains, including Limon and points east.

For those without DMR radios, we will have several available for checkout and practice.
