Washington County Maryland


Butch Eigenbrode, NI2W, RO

     Oh, how our lives have changed. Once Emergency Services were considered to be of importance only when we heard that a big storm was headed our way or when some other event spelled trouble for the area in which we live. Now since 9-11 emergency service is in the fore-front of our minds. As amateurs we now fully comprehend (at least we should) the importance of the FCC statement of purpose for The Amateur Radio Service where they see us as a  "reservoir of trained operators" 

The local RACES/ARES site provides information about our changes in operation as well as information on how to become a member of the Washington County RACES/ARES group.

For current RACES/ARES club activities please view the Club News section on this site.
