You painted yours? >:D

I wish. It would cost more to paint it than it's worth. I am toying with the idea of replacing it, though. The price tag keeps scaring me off, though.


Isn't it olde enough that it needs a restoration? >:D

Maybe Garage Squad could help you! :o

I may be selling My EF Johnson 5100 VHF P25 soon. It is a walkie talkie and I also have a Tait Orca. Radio prices for compliant radios are crazy for CAP. I am going to get a mobile unit and rarely use this anymore. You of course would need to get Your wing plug and have them program it for You.

Typically the observer/scanners and pilots are paired together in the units (But not always) They wear flight suits or bdus. When I know I am doing comm I wear the blues (Better public image because the press is usually there for actual missions)

I have seen a lot of golf type shirts/grey pants but I don't think that looks professional on a actual mission because the
press is usually there.

The procedure is very structured. You get called (Some squadrons call everyone qualified, some just call the scheduled on-call
flights) You show up and sign in showing Your current qualifications and current ID. From there I usually tell them I want comm or scanner/photographer which I am qualified for. I stay out of the way until called or help with anything that I can do like get meals arranged/drinks etc. There is always a LOT of ways to help. When asked to do scanner I show up at the sign in table and the pilot does most of the paperwork and checks out Your currency. We then get a sortie number and leave to inspect the plane TOGETHER. I watch the pilot checking out everything but say nothing unless He missed a step. We get in the plane which is now a sterile area (NO TALKING) My job is to scan for aircraft in the area and downed planes. When I am in the comm room My job is to direct the aircraft where to go, relay any messages from the mission Commander to the ground team or aircraft and keep track of all aircraft and ground teams which must call in every 15 minutes. If they don't a search for THEM can be conducted in case they had an accident. Civil air patrol is very thorough in their paperwork but I think the 2.5 hrs launch time from notice to launch is too long. MANY moon ago We had to be at base within 30 min. When I was a cadet We had lights and sirens but times have changed and that was a different state.

I applied to the Honor Guard Academy for this summer, before the deadline and got no response after the slotting. It didn't appear on my "applied" despite actually applying. It was first on my list and have not been put as alternate either...

Which one?  HGA is a per-region activity now.
