Our purpose is to promote interest and activity in amateur radio and public service, by working in concert with the Butler County Emergency Management Agency during ARES and or RACES real world activities or exercises. Also by providing amateur radio emergency communications as needed, by participation in other public service related activities where reliable radio communication is requested.
We also encourage others to become better educated in the amateur radio arts by sponsoring amateur radio classes, participating in local Special Events and Field Day activities whenever possible.
We participate in Simulated Emergency Test drills
Butler County Fall 2018 SET Example
Our radio room is located in the Butler County 9-1-1 emergency operations center so that we can work closely with emergency operations during SET drills.
Our club meets on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 1930 at the Butler County 9-1-1 center.
There is no formal meeting in December. Instead, club members pick an external location for a Christmas party.
