Lee County Amateur Radio Emergency Service (LeeCARES) consists of licensed amateurs who voluntarily registered their qualifications and equipment, with their local ARES leadership, for communications skills for the public when disaster strikes. However, there are times and circumstances where LeeCARES needs to purchase equipment, fuel or other items to remain ready to assist in times of emergencies. Your donations can help us do just that.
While cash donations are preferred we also accept in-kind donations. Our current needs are:
- 7 X 16 Tandem Axle Enclosed Cargo
- large generator or solar system to provide electricity to the cargo trail
- 2 – Portable HF Amateur Radio Antenna’s
- 2 – RA-50 Low-cost high-quality USB radio adapter for packet transmissions
We appreciate your assistance in keeping out county informed and safe during local emergencies and disasters.
