About MMSH

Purpose

The Mercury - Mount St. Helens Emergency Radio Communications net is a VHF Amateur Radio net.  According to our preamble, the purpose of the net is to:
  • Provide and foster fellowship opportunities.
  • Train members to be skilled radio communicators.
  • Offer services to agencies involved in humanitarian relief efforts.
While we welcome all licensed amateur radio operators from anywhere who desire to participate in our net, the primary geographical area of focus for our group's service is within the boundaries of the Longview, WA Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints; corresponding roughly to the area of Cowlitz County, WA

History

Mercury Mount St. Helens officially launched on August 1, 2007 as a 2-meter FM ERC training net and a supporting "Yahoo! Group", through the efforts of Terry Reams, KB7IFR.  By mid-2010, its list of active participants (those who participate in the net at least once a month) had grown to between 40 and 50 amateurs.  Terry turned the reins over to Charles, AD7UF, on May 1, 2010. Terry remains an active participant in our group.

On March 4, 2013, Mercury Mount St. Helens was officially organized as an association.  On April 10th of that year, we received our club call sign, W7MSH, from the FCC.
