Interested in Emergency Communications?

CVARC is open to anyone with an interest in amateur radio. Our members enjoy building and operating radio equipment and, perhaps most importantly, putting our skills and equipment into use to help our community when needed. 

CVARC has a very active Auxiliary Communications Service (ACS) which stands ready to assist authorities by establishing communications when traditional methods become unavailable, as they sometimes do after a natural disaster.  To prepare, CVARC ACS members operate weekly nets, monthly Operational Readiness Training, and provide communications for community events, marathons, and bike rides. 

If you’re interested in training to assist with emergency communications, please contact Zak Cohen at zcohen@ieee.org
