Welcome to W4HMC.WordPress.com. This is a new site for the Huntsville – Madison County Emergency Management Agency’s Amateur Radio Station – W4HMC. Most of the organizational information for the Madison County Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES), and the Huntsville – Madison County Radio Amateur Communications Emergency Service (RACES) is found in their website http://www.hmcraces.org.
This site is mostly an informational view to help promote public awareness of the concept of Amateur Radio providing volunteer communications support for your local Emergency Management Agency. The HMCEMA has been a long-time supporter of ham radio, and recognizes the value brought to the community by these talented volunteers. In return the local amateur community appreciates the support shown by the HMCEMA, and works to find useful and innovative ways to provide communications assistance in times of need.
