A very basic overview is that we provide communication links throughout Huntington Town during events such as hurricanes and blizzards. Using amateur radio, messages are sent from the Town’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC), to key locations such as hospitals or shelters throughout Huntington.
Net Control broadcasts local information for FCC licensed amateur radio operators to forward to other radio operators, family and neighbors within the Town. These messages include latest press releases concerning Town services from the Huntington Town Supervisor. Radio operators in the field report back power outages, downed trees, impassable roads, flooding, and any disruptions in landline, cell phone, Cablevision or Fios service.
To get involved, do the 5 steps listed below:
Have a valid FCC amateur radio license, with a fixed station at your home QTH .
