    Greetings, all.  I'm starting a new General Forum blog topic on the Communications Trailer.  

    The first posting I have on this is to announce that the first draft of the Technical Reference Manual for the trailer is now live on the CARA web site !

    On the CARA web site, look under the ‘Operating’ pull down menu.  You'll see the listing "Communications Trailer."

    This document is intended to be a one-stop information source for users of CARA's Communications Trailer. It contains user manuals, procedures, and images for the various components of the radio system within, and of the trailer itself. It has been made available on line so that new users of the comm trailer can learn much about it before arriving at it. All users, experienced or first-timers, will appreciate the depth of info contained within, assisting them to capably operate the systems on board.

    This is an Adobe Acrobat (Version X) document. The Table of Contents is in the Bookmarks sidebar of the Acrobat file.

    This manual is intended to be accessed live, on-line, with laptop, smart phone, tablet, etc.. If users expect to be viewing the Manual in dark areas with no LAN, cellular data, or Wi-Fi, please download the Manual unto your device. Check back frequently on-line to make sure you have the latest version.

    This manual is a living document and will be continuously updated as required. Please forward all suggestions for updates to VA6RPL 'Peter LaGrandeur' at .
