CERT Licensed Radio Session March 2018

WAARC Technician licensing class graduates were issued JCC Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program hand held two-meter transceivers at a ceremony on Friday March 30, 2018.  Chris Courson KC4CMR, the JCC Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES) Emergency Coordinator, provided eligible students who graduated from both recent CERT and ham radio courses with their radios free of charge.  These radios are issued to CERT qualified hams to be ready to respond to emergencies in their local areas and to participate in community service events providing communications support.

If you hear one of these new hams on the air, give them a warm welcome!
