Recommended Frequencies

Recommended Programmed Frequencies and Channels

for HTs and Mobile radios used to support SARA

In the course of an emergency, you might be handed a radio other than your own and asked to communicate with it. It happens!

In order to facilitate more efficient (doing things right) and effective (doing the right things) communications, the SARA Board of Directors recommends that all ham radios used to support SARA-related activities, whether HT or mobile, be programmed with the following frequencies on channels 1-14. 

The radios in Saratoga‚Äôs two Emergency Operations Centers and the trailer, as well as the radios at the Saratoga Retirement Community are already programmed with these frequencies on these channels.  We hope you will consider doing the same.
