Emergency Operations Trailer
The trailer in action
The club owns an Emergency Communications trailer to help out in many different situations. It is capable of running on grid power or generator power. There are two fully equipped stations with HF radios and laptops. There are also a number of different antennas on board to suit almost any conditions.
The club regularly exercises with the trailer to make sure that equipment is functional and members are familiar with the equipment.
The Ashtabula County Amateur Radio Club would like to recognize the former members of our club who are now Silent Keys for their knowledge and foresight to lead us into the future of Amateur Radio.
