IARU Region 2 Makes Ham Aid Donation

International Amateur Radio Union Region 2 (IARU-R2) has pledged to donate $5,000 as well as two Ham Aid kits to the Puerto Rico-Caribbean relief effort. 

The IARU, the international amateur radio union consisting of over 160 national Amateur Radio societies around the world, and region 2 which consists of the Americas has made the donation to Ham Aid.

Ham Aid was created in 2005 in response to the need for equipment and resources to support the Amateur Radio response to hurricanes in the US and Caribbean. ARRL has supplied Ham Aid kits for the hurricane emergency response efforts in Puerto Rico and elsewhere, where the equipment helps to support necessary communication in the disaster’s wake.
