As Radio Amateurs, the very reason for our existence is to provide communications in times of emergencies. Because of this, we are given sections of radio spectrum to perform our work. This spectrum is worth billions of dollars to commercial interests and they would love to obtain any of it. As practice for emergency communications we help with communications for public service events. We always need to reaffirm the need for our frequencies. These events provide us with an opportunity to refine our skills as proficient operators.


In June of 2015 Skyview members helped with communications for the Westmoreland County air show. The multi-day event requires communications with multiple public safety entities. With an event this size the safety of the participants is always of prime concern.

Congratulations to the Westmoreland County WEARS group on the great job of coordination and the VERY nice EMCOM communications trailer. Thanks to all involved
