All Allegheny County ARES members, and those interested in ARES are invited to the Allegheny County ARES Organization Meeting on Saturday, September 21 from 12 noon to 3:00 pm. The meeting will be held at the Red Cross office at 2801 Liberty Avenue in Pittsburgh. Parking is available nearby.

Meet our new Allegheny County ARES Emergency Coordinator Bob Mente NU3Q, and Western Pennsylvania ARRL Section Staff members. We will discuss plans for upcoming Public Service activities, the October 5th Simulated Emergency Test, the new ARES Connect system, training requirements and more.

Many changes and improvements to the ARES program have been instituted by ARRL in the past couple years, and this is your opportunity to get up to date. One thing that hasn’t changed is the opportunity to serve the public that ARES offers to all licensed amateurs who have a desire to share their stations and their communication skills with their community!

If you are registered in ARES Connect, please sign in to our WPA events calendar to pre-register. If you are not yet signed up in ARES Connect, please send an email to allegheny@wpa-arrl.org to sign up for the meeting. (We need to know how many handout packets to prepare!)
