North Texas is very active with community and charity events. These events include hundreds or even thousands of participants, and are often spread over a wide geographical area. By nature, this requires efficient point to multipoint communications that make cellular an impractical communications solution. This offers an opportunity for amateur radio to shine. Many Plano Amateur Radio Klub members volunteer their time and ingenuity to make sure these events are successful, by providing communications support that matches the needs of each individual event. If you would like to become involved, check the “Events” section for upcoming events, and join the forum that corresponds to the event you’re interested in.
