In February of 2022, Hamilton County experienced a nearly complete outage of all commercial communications (telephone, cell phone, and Internet). Of course, Amateur Radio still worked. When (not if) this happens again, we need to be more organized and prepared to help ourselves, our neighbors, and our communities across the county. We are looking for more people to get involved with emergency communications.
If you do not have an amateur radio license, we will help you get yours. A license preparation course is being planned for late fall. Details TBD.
Please contact NNY Section ARES Emergency Coordinator Peter Newell KC2WI for more information.
