The Utica Shelby Emergency Communication Association is a group of over 150 hams from all over the Metro-Detroit area. This club is the largest and most active club in southeast Michigan. Our club is radioactive! Throughout the spring, summer and fall, we regularly have "Larks in the Park", gathering at local parks and playing radio! We setup and operate QRP stations, design and test new antenna ideas, checking into local and international nets, hold cookouts, have "fox" (hidden transmitter) hunts and enjoy the good fellowship of each others company. We participate in radiosports, participating as a club in major (and minor) radio contests, including the ARRL Field Day event where we have regularly placed in the top 20 overall with a 3rd place finish in 2000. For the past four years USECA has been involved in the SPAR Winter field day, placing 1st overall in 2011 and 2013 with 2nd place finishes in 2010 and 2012.
