Our Mission Statement

The mission of the Glendora Emergency Response Communications group, herein known as GERC, is to unite those amateur radio operators who have a common interest in communications, specifically to provide training, support and encouragement to radio amateurs who wish to serve as emergency communicators for the Glendora Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.


The Glendora Emergency Response Communications  Net and Roundtable meets Thursdays at 8:30 pm local time.  Our Net frequency is 145.525 MHz simplex. On the first Thursday we meet at 2121 E. Rte. 66 in Glendora at 7:00 pm in the primary room at the rear of the facility. Informative presentations on ham radio and preparedness related to emergency communications are among the many topics that are offered. Visitors welcome!  All hams are welcome! 

Join the GERC Net for worldwide communications!
