Missing Children DesignA ham group that advocates for missing children has been invited to demonstrate Amateur Radio at a fund-raiser in Brockton on November 14. The Radio Operators for Missing Children, KB1HGK, “promotes getting ham operators involved in Amber Alerts and to be available to provide emergency communications in the event that they are requested by law enforcement or legitimate missing person’s organizations,” according to the group’s founder, Sheree Greenwood, K1SQ, of Warren, MA. “This fund-raiser is for missing child Jennifer Fay who will have been missing for 15 years on this date. Money is being raised to help follow up on recent tips to try and locate Jennifer.”

The event will run from 7:30 pm until midnight and will feature snacks, a DJ, and raffles. The Amateur Radio station is planned for the first part of the evening. “If people would like to attend as guests the cost is $25 for tickets.”
