Volunteers Providing Emergency Communications for Multnomah County, Oregon

News from Around the County

Our July 23 ARES meeting will be on the air on 146.840- (MC1). Adam KF7LJH will be leading an SSTV practice exercise. Information on how to set up on your phone or a SignaLink will be sent prior to July 23. We are asking for you to check in via Winlink on the Winlink check in template form. More details will be sent prior to the date.

Be sure you have Saturday July 18 on your calendar for the mobile ARES exercise, “GPS Food Drive – Drive”. This should be a fun one and will get you out of the house and traveling to various checkpoints. Your food donations will go to those who need help feeding their families. You should already have the drill guide in your email. If not, send an email to leadership [at] multnomahares [dot] org and we can send you a copy. You will not want to miss this as we have several surprises for you along your way through the course.

The MCARES annual “Raffle” is coming soon! There are some great items this year. We have figured out a way to do this even though we are not currently meeting in person. Look for an email later in July. This year the raffle is raising funds to equip and build the “Spartan” trailer project.  

We all really miss getting together in person and hope this COVID pandemic will get stamped out at some point. Stay safe!
