Public Service in Amateur Radio is one key reason ¾ of a million Americans have ham radio licenses. Watch public service in Amateur radio in all its glory during Sunday night’s premiere of the 6th Edition of What Hams Do… the TV show, at 8 PM at this link – https://youtu.be/mou0moNZ2AM. – Learn how 149 amateur radio volunteers made this year’s MS150 City to Shore Bike ride a $3.5 million fund raising success for the Multiple Sclerosis Society. The incredible ham radio volunteer team kept bike riders safe from one end of the route to the other. Amateur Radio operators manned support and gear wagons, dispatched emergency medical help when needed, assisted and guided riders at rest stops and maintained communications from points about a mile apart from the city to the shore.
Chat live during our YouTube Premiere and join participants in the show and others to talk about the superlative work Amateur Radio Operators perform at Public Service events throughout North America.
The repeater’s website is always looking for new content from the users’ of 985. Please feel free to pass some articles, pictures, etc, to AF3Z or KC3CIB. Whether its a technical article, something pertaining to operating, a homebrew project, how you got started in ham radio, a DIY item, installation, shack, mobile or portable pictures, etc…
Any time something new is added, there is always a big spike in website activity.
For those 985er’s that participated in the AM Rally 2021 in February, here is a live stream from Jason, N3YUG, in Southern MD. You can hear us from approx 6:30 to 45:00 minutes. You can hear how some stations got stronger and some got weaker as propagation changed. Very interesting, nonetheless, hearing us all on AM!
