Amateur Emergency Communications
Amateur Radio Operators (HAMS) of Monterey County support local agencies whenever an emergency calls for extra communication resources. Although we are called "amateurs" we are very professional in the level of service we provide as a volunteer (non paid) network of highly skilled communication personnel.
MC-AEC is a governing organization responsible for fund raising and is fully sanctioned as an operating club by ARRL National.
