Amateur (HAM) radio volunteers brought together by our desire to support public service events throughout the state of Utah
To provide technical, training and financial support to Amateur Radio operators, clubs and related organizations in the state of Utah for the purpose of providing communication support for public service events, community service projects, emergency service organizations and government agencies in the event of public emergencies as well as provide for the expansion and enrichment of the Amateur Radio hobby.
During our normal support season, we receive donations from grateful event participants and managers. This year we have seen the majority of events that were cancelled or postponed the past two years comeYour contribution will enable us to support our volunteers and continue to provide support for events in the future.
This is our primary service. Along with supporting public service events UtahSAG works with both Salt Lake County ARES and Utah County ARES to provide support in the event of an emergency. UtahSAG also supports the Utah NWS office in Salt Lake City providing support in the event of a weather related emergency.
In conjunction with the W5YI Salt Lake Area VE group we provide FCC Amateur Radio License testing the last Monday of the month except for May (held on the Monday before the last, since the last is Memorial Day) and December (the week between Christmas and New Years) at the Taylorsville City Hall 2400 West Taylorsville Blvd (5400 S) in Taylorsville, UT., at 7:00 PM.
