Icom M-802 Webinar Oct 24th 2017

The Seven Seas Cruising Association's SSU is putting on an Icom M802 webinar

Icom IC-M802 Made Simple for Cruisers (2-nights)
Tuesday, October 24, 2017 5:00:00 PM PDT

Here is a link for more info and to sign up:

Terry Sparks shows you simple step-by-step procedures that anyone can follow to use Icom’s IC-M802 HF SSB radio. Pictures and charts help simplify the steps, so even if you cannot program a VCR or master your smart phone, this course will make you an 802 pro.

Terry begins with an overview of the M802’s buttons and knobs that are used for common operations. Next, Terry discusses the most common operations required to listen to cruiser nets and make a call. Then Digital Selective Calling (DSC) is discussed in detail. Terry discusses using DSC for position requests (find a friend), individual calls to contact friends as easy as making a telephone call, group calls, and distress, safety and emergency calls. Terry shows you how to program MSI numbers into the M802’s memory, customizing it for your friends and cruising area.

Terry discusses how to optimize and error proof the hardware installation to ensure the best operational results. Finally, Terry provides recommendations for cruisers to make sure the M802 is as simple as possible to operate.

With the M802 being re-introduced back into the U.S. market in the next few months, specifically for cruisers, there has never been a better time to learn how to get the most out of this iconic marine SSB radio.

Part 1 will start at 8:00pm EDT on Tuesday and Part 2 will start at 8:00pm EDT on Wednesday.
