The purpose of our group is to support the Galveston County Office of Emergency Management (GCOEM), which is located in the Galveston County Emergency Management Facility (EMF) on FM 646 in League City, just east of Interstate 45.
Our group is composed of amateur radio operators from Galveston and surrounding counties. Our station (callsign WR5GC) resides in the EMF. When the group is activated by the GCOEM, we operate the station in shifts. We pass emergency traffic between GCOEM personnel and other agencies around the country. We monitor emergency traffic nets and local repeaters during activations. We have radio operators who are ready to assist in locations throughout the county at local city Emergency Operations Centers.
