Although EMCOM is outside the scope of the DG, many DG members participate in Emergency Communications (EMCOM) activities with various EMCOM organizations in Whatcom County, and there’s some overlap with the DG’s activities in the use of data communications modes such as the fldigi suite and fsq chat mode. If you’re interested in EMCOM activities, see Whatcom Emergency Communications Group (WECG) or your local city’s Auxiliary Communications Services, including Bellingham, Ferndale, and Blaine. Each of these groups have their own on-air activities such as nets.
