- Show your ARES TEAM spirit by joining us.
- Get to meet other ARES Team members

Bring your VHF/UHF "Go Box".
Past experience has shown that, due to the local topography, a plain stock vanilla 5 watt HT with its original factory antenna cannot be relied upon to get the job done at many locations on the Course.

Suggested Equipment Options:
1) An HT with an aftermarket BIGGER/"Betterer" ANTENNA.
2) An HT with a mag mount antenna on the vehicle
3) A mobile radio and antenna on the vehicle (fixed or mag mount).
4) Other?

DRESS CODE: ARES VESTS and CAPS.
- You NEED to be able to be SEEN and FOUND by the Public quickly.
Available at ARRL website.
