Events in CT ARES Region 4 - 2023 (Eastern CT)

Posted by Harrison on February 2, 2023 at 8:05 PM

This email is going out to all active members of CT ARES Region 4 and members of clubs in Region 4.


Below are lists of activities in Eastern CT this year that Amateur Radio Operators and Clubs have in the past assisted with for emergency communications. Please update your calendars for any of these events you are interested in volunteering for emergency communications. Separate emails will come out before each event looking for volunteers. Some from me, some from ECARA, and some from others.

These blue-sky events are a great time to demonstrate to the community how we can be of benefit during gray-sky events. It is also a great time to meet with fellow amateur radio operators for an organized event.
