Ham Radio Operators Support Disaster Recovery Ministry
The primary mission of this group is to develop a capable emergency communications team to support the churches and people of the Florida Conference of The United Methodist Church during times of disaster.
Ham radio is well known as a reliable form of communication in emergencies when all other forms of communication may be down. The ham radio in the conference center in Lakeland was a vital communication link during the hurricanes in 2004 and 2005.
Florida UMC hams currently host a radio net on 3904Khz. every Wednesday 8:30PM and every Saturday 8:30AM.
Ham operators who are interested in joining the conference network may contact Reverend Thom Street at 239-657-2841, or email email@example.com or Pam Garrison at 800-282-8011, extension 148, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
