We strongly endorse community readiness and preparedness to deal with emergencies and disasters. To that end we host the following activity:   


In conjunction with the Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES), we conduct a roll call every Wednesday night at 7 p.m. to practice reporting and relaying information during times of emergency and disaster.

This net is held on the ARA repeater we are privileged to be using, located on Mount Elden, frequency 146.980 with a negative offset and a pl tone of 162.2  In the event of repeater failure, the net will be conducted 146.980 simplex, with close in stations relaying for outlying stations.  Visitors and newcomers to the area are always welcome and strongly encouraged to participate in this net.
