Local Emcomm

Want to be more involved in the community?  The following groups are Emcomm (Emergency Communications) groups in the county.  Each of them is affiliated with a public safety organization.  Membership in these groups is normally free, although training is required.

MBARC is not affiliated with any of these groups, although many of our members also participate in them.

Stored Equipment

The club has a significant amount of equipment currently being stored courtesy of Brian K1BJ.  As discussed over the last couple meetings we will be making decisions regarding its disposition this spring and summer.  Please look over these pictures and share your thoughts at future general club meetings. As a reminder, we will ask for volunteers to help sort through this material in an effort to assure we make the best use of it.
