2024 Public Service Events

Public Service Events (PSEs) like the Houston Marathon, the Woodlands Triathlon, the Wings Over Houston Airshow, the Buffalo Bend Regatta, the BP Houston to College Station MS-150 and other bike-a-thons, walk-a-thons, parades, conventions, etc. provide Amateur Radio Operators (HAMs) with opportunities to operate in real world situations under controlled nets where the limits of their mobile equipment can be tested, where their concise and complete communications abilities can be honed and where ARRL ARES can provide valuable communications and location services to our communities and to our served agencies…and it’s fun. I hope you’ll join us at an event real soon!

Never done it? Nothing to it. Sign up with the organizer listed for the event below or at the link provided at the bottom of the page, let them know that you’re new and want to help. They’ll pair you up with an experienced operator for some quick OJT.
If you know of an event that would benefit from our volunteer event communications and location services team, please contact your Emergency Coordinator (EC) with the event manager’s name and contact phone number or email address.
