Doesn't that fall under ES and Operations? That's what CAP comms are for.

And "Tools of the Trade" for discussions of the gear itself, right?

-1 Add a section on Communications.  Many times folks have a hard time hunting for the few recent comm threads. 

For example, Warning: this topic has not been posted in for at least 60 days.  Unless you're sure you want to reply, please consider starting a new topic.

But, It's your board.  :)

Doesn't that sort of imply that there might not be enough interest in Communications-specific topics to justify having their own section?

As a comm-disinterested CAP member who tunes out comm discussions after I am familiarized with the on switch and PTT button, I think a board like this may actually help spark a level of interest and respect for Comms.

It is an area often taken for granted, and it should not be. Not everyone needs to be a wirehead-techie, but comms ties us together operationally and such a board may increase overall comm competence and understanding. That can do nothing but make us a better organization.

The worst that can happen is we take it down later due to inactivity. Worth a shot I think.

Post a few hundred more times, and generate enough traffic to justify such a board.

As it stands there isn't enough comm specific traffic.

I wouldn't suggest spamming a bunch of COMM topics in the hopes of getting a new board... might end up suspended or banned for your trouble.

Might be worth the trouble if we also add to the discussion of Comms all the CAP related computer gobblety-gook as well as traditional radio comms. eServices, Capwatch, MIMS, WMIRS, MMU, blah,blah,etc. I don't have the time or patience to sit down in front of a computer for several hours everyday to become an expert in this stuff. I don't use computers in my work and many is the day I jsut don't have the time to even turn the thing on. So something like this would help guys like me.

Sorry, same as in December when this thread was first started, there still isn't enough activity to justify a new board.  Until then, keep the tech stuff in Tools of the Trade.
