“When All Else Fails”

Did the recent nationwide internet outage cause you to lose contact with your loved ones? “When All Else Fails” Amateur radio operators use their training, skills, and equipment to provide communications during emergencies. Amateur Radio, also known as “Ham Radio,” is both an amateur radio service and a hobby. It is a wireless method of communication connecting individuals from every corner of the globe, regardless of location or circumstance. Hams serve our communities when storms or other disasters damage critical communication infrastructure, including cell towers, and wired and wireless networks. Amateur radio can function completely independently of the internet and phone systems. If you are interested in learning how to communicate without infrastructure, send emails without internet, etc… please feel free to come and visit us at the Cleveland Amateur Radio Club.

Founded in 1962, the Cleveland Amateur Radio Club is one of the oldest continually operating amateur radio clubs in the Southeastern United States. Proudly supporting its community for over 60 years.
