MCACS Monthly Meetings

Starting in May, we will be holding monthly meetings of the MCACS members via Zoom at 8 PM on the first Tuesday of the month. There will be no ARES training net on the first Tuesday.

Members should receive a Zoom invitation via email prior to each meeting. Please keep the meeting link handy, as it will be different each month.

On April 9, eight MCACS members represented Montgomery County ARES®in the second-quarter Maryland-DC Section hospital drill. For this drill, we were assigned to set up an HF station at Holy Cross Germantown and pass traffic via Winlink HF peer-to-peer with stations at other participating hospitals in Prince Georges, Calvert, Charles, and St Mary’s Counties.
