I've been trying to build my ribbon rack for a little bit and thought the community service ribbon would be fairly straight forward to get. I know that you need 60 hours to get the ribbon, but what actually counts as hours? What kinds of things can I do to get the hours?

That's GBD's job not CUL.  CUL would not even have that
info unless taking it from messages.

My typical SAREX experience has been that most members want to either fly or be on a ground team, so the communicators find themselves having to perform mission base tasks other that what is listed in the mission radio operator or communications unit leader task books.

A task that is best performed at a mission base is plotting RDF bearings from various ground teams and using triangulation to locate estimated positions of beacons. So bring your maps and your favorite scales and protractors for this kind of work. Also bring whatever you usually use to convert among degrees-minutes-seconds, degrees-minutes, or just degrees, and also UTM. Ideally your squadron has trained on this and use the same methods, so you can lend your tools to another mission base staffer who knows how to use them but doesn't own any.

Extension cord, power strip, pliers, #2 phillips screwdriver, 1/4" flathead screwdriver, N-male to UHF-Female adapter, Coax just to name a few simple items. It all depends how complex you want to get.

I've seen 'recommended' equipment lists for CULs that would require a small truck!

Or RV!


It's okay, I guess. A bit small....

Personally, I prefere cadet of the quarter. it makes it that much more special to be picked. I would also use cadet of the year.

But that's just personal opinion.

And then we got people on the analog channel and complaining that they couldn't hear anything.

What are you going to do?

Well, they are supposed to do a ground check and confirm they have comms, but how many
Observers do we all know think they are "safety pilots" and are listening to ATC instead of the CAP radio?

Underutilized and not well understood. We have the usual interoperability issues because people didn't understand the difference between a digital channel and an analog channel.

At a recent mission, we told the pilots that the channel on the FM in the airplane was going to be a different channel than the one they normally use, even though the text might be the same. You had to make sure you were on the digital channel which was a different channel number than the analog channel. Everybody in the front two seats nodded like they understood.

 And then we got people on the analog channel and complaining that they couldn't hear anything.

What are you going to do?
