Radical Radio Skills

Please join us for our monthly meeting. This month’s topics is all about radio communications in a disaster. Our Mesa Emergency Services Amateur Communications (MESAC) members will be delivering the training. Remember to BRING YOUR RADIO (if you have one) and CHECK IN as you arrive – Channel 4 on FRS or the MESAC Frequency on Amateur Radio. We will be practicing too!  


This month’s tool donation is the square head or scoop style shovel. This shovel is used for debris clean up. We will have a vehicle in the lot to collect the shovels so you don’t need to carry the shovel upstairs to the meeting.  Thank you for your donations.
