              Founded in 1993, FreeWave Technologies manufactures the most
              reliable, high performing, lowest power consumption, license-
              free and licensed radios for mission-critical data transmission
              around the world. www.freewave.com

    WHAT:     Hands-On Training Class - Wireless Communication (Class 973.1)

              Berridge will lead a hands-on class on how to set up serial
              networks, using wireless spread spectrum radios. The in-depth
              demonstration will show participants how they can use spread
              spectrum radios to incorporate wireless communications radios in
              a wide variety of applications. Participants will have the
              chance to configure, test and actually use the radios in a
              networked configuration as part of their in-class experience.

              Spread Spectrum Systems for EFM and SCADA (Class 3155.1)

              As oil and gas companies work toward greater automation and
              e-business solutions, the challenges of getting real-time,
              reliable data from remote locations continues to be one of the
              greatest hurdles. Today, there are many fine choices in
              electronic flow measurement (EFM) and remote terminal unit (RTU)
              equipment available. There also are many fine "bug free"
              software programs to archive, audit and display the collected
              data. The single biggest problem remains communications. It is a
              commonly held belief that over 80 percent of all SCADA system
              problems are communication failures.

              A few years ago, a new radio medium became available. This
              system operates on a shared frequency, and is called spread
              spectrum. This relatively new technology offers many advantages
              and new versatility to SCADA operators. Gardner will discuss the
              benefits and options when using spread spectrum for EFM and
