WOOD COUNTY BULLETIN NR 11.12 DATE: March 20, 2011
SUBJECT: IS YOUR PAPERWORK HANDY?
Do you have the necessary paperwork readily available when you're near your radio or a telephone?
Any time you're monitoring any radio, whether it's a broadcast or two-way radio, you should have a pencil and paper available to write down any information that you might have to pass on to someone else. Some information that you may need to pass on, to someone else, may be in the form of message.
You might be asked to pick up a piece of ARRL (Amateur Radio Relay League) traffic, such as the RADIOGRAM, to deliver to another Amateur Radio station, to someone in the public, or some Public Safety official.
It's nice to have the proper paperwork at hand so you don't have remember the proper format. Keep a copy of all forms that you might need nearby, so that you don't have to keep someone waiting while you find what you need.
