With the current COVID-19 pandemic, most community events have gone virtual. Virtual events usually do not require Amateur Radio support
Prior to COVID, The Amateur Radio clubs and members were active in supporting local community events. In some cases the events were dependent on the volunteers to ensure that the event happens.
Following is a list of events that were in the local calendars and would always welcome volunteers. Support from CARA is available for new hams if they need training or perhaps even a loan of a radio if required.
