The Helena Amateur Radio Club met Saturday morning at the Helena Regional Medical Center's parking lot for their annual competition day. The club provides the community with emergency communications capabilities if regular communication channels go down. They also provide valuable services in emergency situations. The club assisted with the evacuation of the same hospital in 1997 when three firefighters were killed in the line of duty when the BPS plant exploded.
