Amateur radio operators participate in many events throughout the year, usually as part of a network, controlled by a central dispatcher "net control".
They also can be emissaries of the hobby, such as at community fairs and exhibitions.
Radio operators interested in participating in any of these, please monitor the CARA Events Calendar for news of upcoming events.
Equipment required for these events generally include a personal vehicle, a dual channel dual band cross band (VHF/UHF) 50 Watt mobile, and a dual band dual channel (VHF/UHF) 5 Watt handheld.
