Orange County Hospital Emergency Amateur Radio Team

What We Do...

The Orange County Emergency Amateur Radio Team (OCHEART) is an ARES/ARRL sponsored research, training, and advisory organization for local units of the Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES). 

In this capacity, OCHEART assists in developing practices and procedures for RACES Hospital Disaster Response Teams, an Operational Area frequency plan, interoperability standards, medical facility communications, hospital focused communication training, individual communicator performance standards, countywide exercises, and Amateur Radio based digital networks including WinLink and AREDN/MESH. 

All Orange County RACES unit members are encouraged to participate in OCHEART weekly nets, monthly ZOOM meetings, semi-annual workshops and exercises.
