As you remember from your studies, the FCC grants us a wide range of frequencies and modes to play with. And, in exchange, our operating privileges come with responsibilities.
Specifically …
FCC Part 97 Amateur Radio Service,  Subpart A--General Provisions,  §97.1 Basis and purpose.
The rules and regulations in this Part are designed to provide an amateur radio service having a fundamental purpose as expressed in the following principles:

(A)  Recognition and enhancement of the value of the amateur service to the public as a voluntary noncommercial communication service, particularly with respect to providing Emergency Communications.
JOIN Connecticut ARES (www.CTARES.ORG)
Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES - pronounced “AIR-EZE”)
ARES is part of the Field Organization of the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), which is based in Newington, CT.  It serves to provide a structure not only for Amateur Radio Operators to volunteer their time/equipment/expertise for those times when regular communication systems either become overloaded or fail, but also to provide training and practice opportunities in order to establish a functional level of readiness.

As a member of ARES, you will be part of a State and Federal recognized Voluntary Organization Active in Disaster (VOAD) that provides Public Service (Auxiliary) communications to support Wallingford (and other communities) in times of need.
If you live in Wallingford, please contact:
