Our Membership Goals

We currently have about 60 active members. Our goal is to have 64 members by the end of 2018.  We need that number of active members to provide sufficient coverage of our designated locations in emergencies for periods of up to 72 hours.  

We plan to achieve these goals by helping more CERT members get their Amateur Radio license. We currently have over 50 CERT members.

An active member is one who has made radio contact with us during the past 12 months and is willing to engage in emergency volunteer activities within Los Gatos & Monte Sereno.

You may be aware that the population of Los Gatos is 30,500 and Monte Sereno is 3,500, for a combined total population of 34,000 (77.7% are 18 or older).  The FCC database lists just over 450 combined residents having a current ham radio license.  That is 1.7% of the LG/MS population 18 or older.  The percentage across the U.S. at the end of 2015 was 0.3% of the population 18 and older.  The percentage varies by demographics of each region.
