Western Pennsylvania Section News

13 Mar 2020


At this time, it does not look like a "communications emergency" is likely to occur. Unlike weather and wildfire disasters which often cause extensive damage to communications infrastructure, a biological emergency typically has a low likelihood of disruption to services and utilities such as electricity, gas, water, sanitation, cable, landline and cellular phone service.

Rather than make an immediate blanket cancellation of all amateur radio activities in our Western Pennsylvania Section, we should seek and comply with the guidance of our partner agencies.

We encourage everyone to put safety first, and if you have any doubts, follow the wisdom of the old saying, "Better safe than sorry."

Stay safe and stay healthy!


73 and Press ON!
