Our members come from all walks of life and bring with them a vast array of knowledge and experiences.  We have in our ranks fighter pilots, fire chiefs, computer techs, law enforcement officers, house wives, we even have a B-24 pilot with 50 combat missions in the Pacific Theater during WWII.
If you are interested in Digital Communications, providing Phone Patches for DoD aircraft, Mission Support, Traffic Nets or Emergency Communications, we have a place for you in our organization and would love to have you join us!

If you have a specialty such as EMCOM or Repeaters, we can use your services.  We are currently trying to setup a linked state-wide repeater system.

If you have the capability to deploy at a moment’s notice, we need volunteers to man our pre-configured go-kits.  We have a working relationship with the Indiana Department of Homeland Security who has graciously provided the funding for these go-kits.  They also have a state of the art EMCOM base station centrally located in Indianapolis for any state or national emergencies that might arise.

If you are a prior service communicator, no matter which branch, come join us and don’t let your knowledge or experience go to waste.
