Amateur Radio: ARES RACES

Philip Szczepanski W3YVT, SK

We are a group of trained Amateur Radio operators in Harford County who provide public service during emergencies, and support community events like the Harford County Farm Fair and March of Babies.  We regularly participate in the Maryland statewide RACES communications exercise (COMMEX) as well as practice hospital communication nets administered by the ARRL MDC Section.

Amateur Radio Repeaters and Nets

Join our ARES net each second Tuesday at 7:00 PM, 146.775 (-) tone 146.2. Everyone is invited – you do not need to be a member – please join us!  Also check out the Clubs & Nets page to find other nets in and around the area.

Our call sign is KC3FHC (Harford County RACES) with repeaters in both analog FM and digital D-STAR located in Forest Hill, MD near Bel Air – see our repeaters page for more information. This is an open repeater system, all Amateur Radio operators are welcome to use the repeaters.
