The {TESS+} team continues to listen to your needs. Based on your feedback WFP are offering two new training webinars in the month of August. The webinars refer to the latest UN Security Communication Systems (SCS) VHF/UHF radio standards.

The webinars are targeted at people who design, operate, support or manage UN SCS VHF radio networks (both technical staff or security staff).

  • Please have your pen and paper with you for webinar 1 (25 August) as there will be a number of exercises to walk you through the UN callsign and SelV systems design and implementation.
  • Webinar 2 (31 August) is an overview of advanced VHF network designs to bridge different VHF networks and link VHF networks: the basic design, and how can you prepare for an advanced VHF network deployment.
