2 This presentation is intended to get you thinking about your Go-Kit: Why you need one. Why you need one. What items you should put in it. What items you should put in it. How you should divide it up for ease of transportation and for optimum utility. How you should divide it up for ease of transportation and for optimum utility. By giving you a view of my own Go-Kit, I hope to offer some suggestions for items you can include in your own kit. 2

3 Mission of the Emergency Communicator Mission of the Emergency Communicator What is a Go-Kit? What is a Go-Kit? Why you need a Go-Kit Why you need a Go-Kit Types of Go-Kits Types of Go-Kits A Look at KE7HLRs Go-Kit A Look at KE7HLRs Go-Kit Wrap-Up Wrap-Up Sources for Further Information Sources for Further Information Equipment Sources Equipment Sources 3

4 Mission: Get every message you handle to its intended recipientquickly, accurately, and with a minimum of fuss. Success: Requires that you employ your operational and technical skills at the highest level possible. Meaning: You must be adequately prepared to handle your assignment, so that you can keep focused on the job at hand. 4
