Ham radio will be a crucial communication tool, should cell towers and/or internet be unaccessible following a major disaster. Join our growing ham radio network and weekly check-in for ham radio operators in the 94010 zip code and local area. Both recently-licensed ham radio neighbors and more experienced residents are involved. Our goal is to have at least one ham radio operator in all neighborhoods. If you are interested in participating, or have any questions, please contact HNN via email.

If you have a license, please check in on Tuesday evenings at 19:30 local time at 147.525 Megahertz with a PL tone of 114.8 (BURLINGAME 1) in the simplex mode. (If for any reason this frequency becomes unavailable, please switch to the alternate frequency of 146.595 MHz, same mode and PL tone.)

In addition, the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office of Emergency Services holds a net every Tuesday at 20:00 on 146.865 (-) PL 114.8 and 146.925 (-) PL 114.8.
