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.
Live in the Town of Huntington, NY area (north-western Suffolk County).

December 2017 Report
2017 has been another great year for our group. We are 21 active members. Early in 2017, we had Blizzard Niko and Storm Stella. We congratulate John Livigni-KD2LKN on accepting AEC NCS duty, and welcome Mike Hoddinott-K2BUS to the group. We launched a new website www.huntingtonnyaresraces.org and worked with the Larkfield Amateur Radio Club on the Huntington Hospital Amateur Station. Everyone in their own way contributed; by being able to use their amateur radio station to relay real time data concerning power status, weather and more to assist the Town. Thanks for all your hard work keeping your stations up to par and participating in the Monday night training nets.
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.
