Salt Lake County ARES®
Providing Emergency Communications services using all modes and methods appropriate for use by licensed amateur radio operators.
Public Service Events are a great way to train for emergency communication events.  They also help you learn to use your radio and communicate with others in a net.  Public Service Events also allow amateur radio operators to give back to the communities in which they live.

The Amateur Radio Public Service Event (ARPSE) web site has been established to link Amateur Radio (Ham) Operators with various public service opportunities in the state of Utah.  All throughout the year, Amateur Radio Operators volunteer their time and equipment to help support a wide variety of events.  These events include, but are not limited to, parades, walks, runs, and bike tours.  While Amateur Radio operators are primarily communicators, they in many cases get heavily involved in the actual operation of the event.  Whether it be helping to plan logistical support or responding to event emergencies, Amateur Radio Operators play a vital role in the health and safety of event participants and overall event success.

During our March 2012 in person meeting, Brett Neilson, KC7IIB, did a training for Salt Lake County ARES.  The following is a video of that training.

In November of 2011, Brett also did a presentation for the Utah Amateur Radio Club (UARC).  A PDF version of the slides from the presentation are available from the UARC web site.
