Why get an Amateur Radio License?

There are many reasons to get involved with amateur radio. Beyond being a fascinating hobby, it is also a valuable communication tool for us in the Gorge! You don’t have to get more than a few miles from the Columbia River and cell phone coverage becomes spotty at best. A small inexpensive handheld radio linked through repeaters on mountaintops throughout the Gorge will allow you to summon help in an emergency.

In the event of a major disaster (like a Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake), we can expect cell phones and landlines to be out many days to many weeks. Amateur radio will be the main method of two-way communication until normal phone systems are returned to service.
