Know Your Radio Night

Hillsborough County ARES/RACES will be holding its monthly know your radio night this upcoming Wednesday evening (10/21) at 7pm. All are welcome to attend, even if you don’t have a radio or a license. As always, this will be an informal session where those who would like to learn can come and do so in a friendly, unassuming environment. All questions are welcome. Remember, the only dumb question is the one that ISN’T asked. If you need help programming a radio that you own, please bring the radio, any cables you might need, and the owner’s manual with you. As you may know, some radios are more of a challenge to program than others but we’ll do our best to help with that as well.

We’ll meet at the Hillsborough County EOC, which is located at 2711 E Hannah Ave in Tampa. For those that have never been there before the doors are kept locked for security reasons. When you get to the building, you’ll see a phone to the right of the door. There will be a sign by the phone with a phone number to call. We’ll come get you.

I hope to see you all there.
