Steve, I have a presentation on portable emergency communication, go boxes, antenna set up, solar, and battery power, generator power, which is about 40 or 45 min approximately. It's set up for zoom. I have done this presentation for the Garland amateur radio club of which I'm a member. Have also participated in a previous mentor fest at the Hella Shriners. I'm also RACES/ARES unit 567 with Garland and Dallas county. Under Jhon Galvin N5TIM. Would be willing to do this presentation if all lines up, time, schedule, no previous commitment, etc. thank you for your service. Please let me know, 73s
