Monterey County 
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 personnel.


MC-AEC is a governing organization responsible for fund raising and is fully sanctioned as an operating club by ARRL National.

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.
