Radio Relay International is proud to announce its new mentoring program. Radio Relay International registered radio operators are invited to submit a mentor application. They will then be assigned to new operators who wish to become proficient in traffic net operations.
Mentors should exhibit the highest standards in decorum, courtesy and operating practices. When applying to be a mentor, one is asked to indicate the modes with which he is proficient in the traffic operations environment. He is also asked to indicate those nets with which he is active.
Mentors will provide one-on-one guidance to new operators wishing to develop proficient traffic handling skills. Using RRI publications such as the RRI Training Manual, the RRI Field Manual and associated power point materials, mentors will be able to refer new operators to appropriate reference materials explaining standards and operating procedures. One-on-one communications, either in-person, via telephone, e-mail or radio will facilitate and encourage initial participation in nets and ensure the new operator obtains proper advice.
Those wishing to serve as mentors may complete the “Mentor Application Form.” They will then be added to a database of qualified mentors. The RRI Training Manager will then assign the mentor to a new operator in his area as students become available.
Those who are new to nets and who would like to receive instruction may also fill out the “Student Application Form” to request assistance.
