As an organization, we are very proud of our long history of legal, coordinated and organized "on air" operations. Our success is based on the training given to each and every CREST member before they initiate "on air" transmissions.
We are a professional organization of civic-minded volunteers who desire to provide community service through communications. We do this in a number of ways:
Training Officer -
As a professional organization, annual elections are conducted and the Communications Officer position is voted upon. Individual members submit prospective names of candidates for the year-long position, and the candidates receiving the highest number of votes is elected into office.
As the Training Officer, it is their responsibility to ensure you receive the prescribed level of training for authorized "on air" operations. Once this has been successfully completed, the Training Officer will submit your Unit Number to CREST Communications for official recognition as an announcement during the next available Monday Night Net.
Frequently Asked Questions -
We have prepared a page on this web site identifying many of the common questions [yes, and their answers] asked by potential and new members. Please familiarize yourself with these before you transmit on the radio.
If you have additional questions, please make sure you share these with the Training Officer during your training. After your training is completed, if you have additional questions, the Training Officer is an excellent resource.
