The Seacoast Squadron of New Hampshire Wing, Civil Air Patrol is looking for people interested in radio communications to donate their time as a part of the all-volunteer Auxiliary of the United States Air Force.
Our nationwide, point-to-point radio communications network is used on both an operational and emergency basis to support CAP operations and the State of New Hampshire. Radio communicators employ both short-range VHF and longer-range VHF communications to accomplish the missions of CAP each week around the Granite State. Training for radio operators is available,
Becoming a fully trained and skilled CAP radio operator for emergency response requires in-depth training in CAP emergency operations, frequent participation in state, region & national radio nets, and participation in occasional weekend exercises.
If you’re up for the task, CAP offers ordinary citizens unique training and service opportunities in your local community.
