Public Service

RARC club members provide communications support for a variety of public service events in the Rochester area. Event sponsors depend upon reliable communications to keep their event running smoothly; from supporting water stops to calling for emergency medical care. As a RARC club member, this is a great way to test your equipment or get your “feet wet” if you are new to ham radio!

Register to participate in a public service event by contacting the event’s RARC Event Organizer, or by clicking the Sign-up link below for events that have an on-line sign up sheet available.
