General Club Meeting – June 16, 2023

This month we will have a presentation from Steve Waterman K4CJX. Steve is going to talk to us about the SHARES program.

The SHARES (DHS CISA) high frequency (HF) radio program provides an extremely resilient means for users with a national security and emergency preparedness mission to inter-operably communicate when landline/cellular communications and the internet are unavailable. SHARES member agencies use existing HF radio resources to coordinate and transmit messages needed to perform critical functions, including those areas related to leadership, safety, maintenance of law and order, finance, and public health. SHARES provides the “E” in PACE (primary, alternate, contingency, emergency) planning for communications.
