“Add amateur radio to your disaster toolkit” was submitted by the San Juan County Amateur Radio Society.
Has COVID got you thinking about what you can do to prepare for future emergencies and disasters, like the inevitable Cascadia Subduction Zone mega-quake? We know that it will grind our region to a halt for weeks if not months, knocking out power, transportation, and regular communications. Consider adding amateur radio skills to your personal preparations.
The San Juan County Amateur Radio Society will be hosting a free amateur radio (“ham radio”) license exam on May 15 in Friday Harbor. Socially distanced testing will follow COVID minimum-contact protocols in compliance with state guidance. Tests will be administered to each candidate separately. Interested parties should contact Kenny KU7M at firstname.lastname@example.org. All ages welcome! Pre-registration is required by May 10.
