We serve the Town of Huntington, Suffolk County, New York.
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.
Have a valid FCC amateur radio license, with a fixed station at your home QTH.

*From NYC-Long Island NLI ARES Facebook page- April 9, 2018* During a real "Bad Day" event, there is a very good chance we would lose access to the repeaters and all radio comms would have to be via HF, much as it was last year in Puerto Rico.The ARES Team in Huntington has suggested that during the 2018 Field Day we try HF comms between towns and counties within our section, (Manhattan to Montauk), as well as other sections. using NVIS. A time of day and 40/80 meter frequencies could be pre-selected and we could see what happens.Perhaps we really get bold, and in addition to phone, we send some digital traffic over HF, whether it be via Winlink, FLDIGI, or another mode.Field Day will be here before we know it, so a little early planning may get the ball rolling.
We encourage our members to join and support the Larkfield Amateur Radio Club. While membership to LARC is not mandatory, it is only proper that we should support the club with our dues. Our nets depend on equipment maintained by LARC. The Huntington ARES/RACES group makes up a large portion of the LARC monthly meetings.
