Amateur Radio Emergency Service® (ARES) consists of FCC licensed amateur radio operators who have voluntarily registered their qualifications and equipment with their local ARES leadership, for communications duty in the public service when disaster strikes.  

We support Northwell Health Huntington Hospital and the  Great Cow Harbor 10K Run  in Northport, Long Island, NY.

 

Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES) is an organization of FCC licensed amateur radio operators who volunteer to provide radio communications for state and local governments during times of emergency. 

We serve the Town of Huntington, Suffolk County, New York.

How To Get Involved

 

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:

 

Step 1

Have a valid FCC amateur radio license, with a fixed station at your home QTH. 

 

Step 2

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

 

Step 3

Check into our weekly Training Net, Monday 7:00pm local, announcing on 147.210 repeater.

*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.
