Amateur Emergency Communications

Amateur Radio Operators

(HAMS) of Monterey County

support local agencies whenever 

an emergency calls for extra 

communication resources.  

Although we are called "amateurs" 

we are very professional in the 

level of service we provide as a 

volunteer (non paid) network of 

highly skilled communication 


MC-AEC is a governing 

organization responsible for fund 

raising and is fully sanctioned as 

an operating club by ARRL

We also support large scale

local events whenever extra

communications support is 

needed, such as bicycle races, 

marathons,and charity events.

Location of Monterey County

The county is around 

100 miles long from 

north to south and the 

variable terrain often 

makes it difficult to 

communicate into 

sheltered valleys 

between ranges.
