The HAM Radio Program consists of licensed Amateur Radio Operators who provide emergency communications during a disaster and support public safety efforts at community events. They also volunteer their skills and equipment in specialized support of law enforcement efforts.
HAM volunteers actively participate in the annual Citywide Disaster Drill, providing essential communications between the City, emergency responders, and the County Office of Emergency Management.
HAM volunteers also play an important role on the Public Safety Team. Members are active in crime prevention and suppression efforts.Members conduct an on-air net (meeting) each Monday at 7:00 p.m. from the La Mirada City Hall basement Radio Room located next to Community Rooms A and B. The net is conducted on the La Mirada 2 Meter Repeater frequency of 146.655- (minus offset) with a CTCSS tone of 114.8. Visitors are welcome on the net.
