Puerto Rico Needs Ham Radio Operators

The phone call from the Red Cross came in late Friday night, just as the full scale of Hurricane Maria’s calamity began taking shape.

“We need 50 of your best radio operators to go down to Puerto Rico.”
In the days after the worst storm in three generations hit the American island — and for many more to come — public electrical, land-line and cellular communication systems showed few signs of life. And radio networks used routinely by police officers, power company workers and other first responder still were down.


The Pierre Amateur Radio Club will be having a Potluck on October 12, 2017 at Fire station #4, 802 N Pierce Ave, Pierre, SD.


The club will provide the main meal and participants bring side dishes. Currently the main dish looks like BBQ from Tom’s Diner.

If you will be attending, please comment below. If you will be bringing a dish, please add that in the comment also.

More information to come.
