ARES and RACES
The Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) is part of the Amateur Radio Relay League's (ARRL) extensive volunteer field organization dedicated to public service.
ARES is comprised of amateur radio operators who volunteer to provide a resource of trained operators for reliable primary or secondary communications links for governmental agencies and non-profit organizations.
RACES The Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service will consist of only those amateur radio operators who have previously registered with State and local governments to provide emergency radio communications for them in times of emergency. This service must be activated by the government.
In addition to wartime communications, operations under the RACES rules can provide or supplement communications during emergencies where normal communication systems have sustained damage. It may be used in a wide variety of situations, including natural disasters, technological disasters, nuclear accidents, nuclear attack, terrorist incidents, and bomb threats.
ARRL "Special Service Club"
The club is involved in: New ham development and training, Public Relations, Emergency Communications, Technical Advancement, Operating Activities, Miscellaneous Activities such as participation in parades, bicycle races, marathons, and demonstration of amateur radio at public activities.
PG&E Siren Tests
Club members participate in the siren tests by monitoring an assigned siren during the test to be sure it is operating correctly. In conjunction with monitoring the sirens, the club conducts a practice net control operation to simulate a tactical situation.
Elmers are experienced hams who help educate and mentor new Technician Class amateurs as they become more and more involved in amateur radio and prepare for advancement to General Class.
Members set up operating radio stations in a portable situations, providing recreation and training for emergency operation. We often use the parks in downtown areas for this weekend activity. The event is open to the public, especially youth, to see all forms of amateur radio communications in action.
General Club Recreation
We have picnics, barbecues and parties. Many of the outside activities usually have a barbeque at the end.
