Radio Equipment Resources

NET volunteers interested in Amateur Radio have several resources available from PBEM and Portland Fire & Rescue to help them train. On this page, you will learn what those resources are and how to access them.

Fire Station Orange Go-Kits

Every Portland Fire & Rescue fire station has a 55-watt VHF radio set and roof mounted antenna. NET AROs can use this equipment.

Borrow an amateur radio set

If you have your amateur radio technician license, you can borrow one of PBEM's handheld tranceivers.
