Communications Vehicle

Event Support Group needs YOUR HELP. We have started a fund raiser to build a communications vehicle. This will be a vehicle with space for 2-3 radio operators. It will contain a desk, radios, antennas, computer monitors, and a generator to allow volunteers to run a communications event in a safe comfortable area away from noise and weather. This will allow us to operate with the highest level of efficiency. Please click here to donate today. This vehicle will also be made available to other local radio groups such as ARES and local amateur radio clubs free of charge as often as our schedule and resources permit.

All funds accepted will be used to fund operational expenses for Event Support Group (annual fees, domains, vehicle construction and maintenance, etc.)

We will gladly accept donations through paypal, or in the form of equipment (see below). If you would like to donate directly, please contact us.

Exciting update! As of August 1, 2019, Event Support Group is now incorporated and been granted 501(c)3 status. This means your donation may even be tax deductible!

Below is a list of some of the kinds of equipment we can use in place of financial donations. As the project progresses we will likely come up with specific more urgent needs which will be listed here as well. We have also created a wish list on Amazon for the convenience of anyone who wants to make a quick purchase.
