2004 NESMC Seeks Applicants for Open Coordinator Positions

The New England Spectrum Management Council is seeking applicants to fill the 222Mhz and 440MHz frequency coordinator positions. The ideal candidates will have a strong familiarity with the existing systems that are on the air, as well as technical knowledge about VHF and UHF propagation characteristics, such as how they are affected by antenna height, transmitter power, topography and other man-made obstructions. Technical knowledge specific to repeater operation is also necessary, such as the effect of coax attenuation, antenna characteristics, and intermodulation issues. Since these positions involve direct interaction, both verbal and written, with amateurs across New England, excellent communications skills are also a necessity. A familiarity with PC-based applications such as Microsoft Word, Excel, and email is very helpful. To perform well, a certain amount of dedication is required. NESMC is seeking applicants that are willing to devote enough time each month to respond quickly and efficiently to applications and inquiries from the amateur public. Furthermore, NESMC holds quarterly board meetings and one annual meeting each year at which attendance by the coordinator is expected. Since NESMC officers and coordinators are located across Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island, the meeting locations rotate to make travel easier for different members each time. If you are interested in applying for either of these positions, please forward a cover letter and resume to Or you may mail your material to Bob DeMattia, NESMC, PO Box 198, Berlin, MA 01503.
