Club Membership Benefits

Club Emergency Service Sticker

You need to acquire some basic skills and knowledge. You need to earn this sticker like you earned your license.

Just checking into ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Service) net or joining a club does not automatically make you an ARES member.

Join ARES, they also have an email list, that is a separate step.
Then Email us afterword to let us know that you joined.

Since being a emergency communicator is more than just a sticker on a window, we will begin by giving a sticker to club members (our member list) that are a current ARES San Diego Section member and promise to work on updating basic skills and knowledge.

You need to be able to communicate basic information.

Will work on using the ITU/NATO phonetic alphabet, munch better than making up words that are hard to understand and sounding unprofessional.

You need to know how a incident is managed.

This is just a start of the basics. Always more that can be learned.

Let us know how your are proceeding with your studies.
