John Murphy, KCØJPO, Adams County PIO was at the Brighton Safety Fair on Saturday on May 31st from 10AM to 2 PM and met some other hams who were either inactive or not aware of ARES in Adams County. He also met a lot of people who were not familiar with amateur radio and how it could help them and their family prepare for a disaster, as well as how we supported those in the recent flooding who were cutoff of from the outside world due to cellphones and land lines not working, as well as during power outages.He was able to enlighten some about amateur radio and ARES,as well as generate interest in ham radio in general, but ARES in particular.
