SPECS members have the opportunity to support public service events sponsored by ARES/RACES, practicing the communication skills that will be essential in emergency events. Members also benefit from timely presentations offered at the members annual meeting. Members assist each other with questions about equipment and emergency procedures, including radio-programming "Cheat Sheets". The SPECS repeater, W6ASH, is also available for public use when not being used for emergency communications.
