The Multnomah County ARES group consists of federally licensed amateur radio operators who are trained in emergency communications and have a strong desire to serve our community whenever the need arises. Hams from throughout the county, who have an interest in community service and emergency communications, are strongly encouraged to get involved. The Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) is a field organization of the American Radio Relay League (ARRL).
Our monthly meetings are on the 4th Thursday of the month at 19:00. All meetings are at the Portland Fire & Rescue Training Center, 4800 NE 122nd Avenue Portland, OR 97230. If you are interested in seeing what we’re all about, please come by a half hour before the meeting and meet with our leadership team.
