Recent public service activities have included:
CARA supports several public service events each year in Howard county and beyond.
For localized events, radio operators are placed at key points along the course, all communicating via UHF/VHF radios back to a net control station located with the event coordinator. For wide area events like bicycle endurance races, we also provide “Support and Gear” (SAG) support where amateur radio operators ride in support vehicles to report issues with the course or the participants.
is welcome and encouraged to participate regardless of experience level
– we will teach you and provide radios if needed! Contact us for more information.
