On Thursday, January 9, 2020, 7 p.m. the Escondido Amateur Radios Society (EARS) will be holding its first monthly membership meeting of the year at the Pacific Western Bank, 900 Canterbury Pl., Escondido.
EARS is an IRS 501 (c)(3) charitable, non-profit organization of educational benefit to amateur radio operators, and others interested amateur radio within Escondido and surrounding areas. Each month we meet and discuss the current events in the world of ham radio and enjoy a presentation on a topic related to operators. January 2020 the group will have an Emergency Coordinator specialist talk about how to be prepared for a natural disaster like hurricanes, wild fires, and earthquakes.
Ham radio operators can become the back bone of communications if a disaster brings power outages for a long time frame. During Hurricane Katrina ham operators assisted in getting needed supplies to communities that had no contact with the outside world. If you’re interested in learning more about the fascinating world of ham radio, you are invited to join the group. For more details visit earsclub.org
