Neighborhood HamWatch

Neighborhood HamWatch was founded by Andy Gausz KG4QCD in 2009

Neighborhood HamWatch is RRI’s officially endorsed community service program. It is closely aligned, and overlaps with the National SOS Radio Network Program.

Local radio clubs serve as an effective liaison between the general public and our North American HF messaging system and emergency services via local Amateur Radio Service EmComm Networks.  With Neighborhood HamWatch, clubs return to their traditional community-based role in emergency and disaster communication.

Here are PDF files of the professionally designed materials used by program participants:
