Hi all,

I recently lost the ability to approve cadet applications in eServices and neither myself nor my unit CC have any idea why.

I've submitted a question to the NHQ Help Desk, but figured I'd check in here to see if anyone has seen anything like this before.

I still have my CDC Duty Position listing and all other items that come with it... I'm just not seeing pending applications showing up in the Approvals section.  My commander is, though, so we know they're still coming through.

Thanks!

I may regret weighing in on this thread, but...

I have always disliked addressing new senior members as Senior Member, and I agree that SM(WOG) is a clumsy attempt to force something into the established rank structure that simply does not fit.  So, if we want to give new senior members a rank (to make addressing them less clumsy, keep eServices from choking on a blank rank field in some database somewhere, etc.), I suggest that we use Airman.

You may now proceed to tear my suggestion apart.

>:D

No, but because under defined circumstances we are covered by federal insurance as if we were employees, some interesting nuances pop up. I do not recall the specifics but it changed how we relate to the HAM radio world, for example.

Ham isn't an acronym or initialization, no need to capitalize.

Except under very limited circumstances, amateur radio stations are only allowed to communicate with other amateurs. What changed was the requirement that radios used on CAP frequencies must be NTIA compliant, which most aren't.

Is CAP considered USAF Civil Service?

Just curious.

DeRosa

Why would you think that?

As he said, "Just curious".  The only stupid question is one not asked. ;-)

No.

While there are civilian employees of CAP,  as well as civilian employees of CAP-USAF (i.e LR-ADOs, which are GS-12s last I checked).

CAP members are not employees and do not fall under "US Federal Civil Service".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_federal_civil_service

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Services_Administration

You're right about it not being considered Civil Service, but I wouldn't count on Wikipedia for giving you the right answer all-around or to be a good source for supporting anything.  Better to get a .gov definition.  Wikipedia is notoriously unreliable and often flat-out wrong - for many reasons.  Just saying.

I'm qualified in mission base, aircrew, and ground qualifications; so if I were to arrive with equipment for every specialty, I would need a MUCH larger vehicle. Generally, I will pack for what I'm planning on doing/evaluating.

That said, I try make as much of my gear multi-purpose capable. This way, even if I don't pack my ground team gear because I'm planning on doing MO, I can at least survive for a short UDF sortie without degrading the performance of the team.

I have my Motorola Micom-S HF w/ Rapid Deployment Package as well as my Kenwood Handhelds up on eBay. Also, if broken Sabre/Astra radio headsets are your thing, I've got you covered. Take a look!

Public exposure is exposure. It's PR and recruiting.

Very much this.

In December, recruiting will be doing a webinar on a technique very similar to this.. :)
Two potential recruits coming Monday - a pilot and a cadet, both from FB. :)
