I can't speak for any other service, but Navy-Marine Corps MARS is very active in Southern California.

You need to be aware that the mission of MARS has changed dramatically in the past few years. MARSgrams and other health and welfare traffic has all but disappeared. The primary mission now is ECOM support to the DoD, state governments, local governments and certain NGOs that have MOU's with specific MARS locations.

Army MARS is also quite active in Southern California, with HF nets during the week and local members queued up on a VHF-HF link for the Chiefs Net Friday nights every week.

Being in *Northern* California I have to get into that net on my 100 watt lonesome. (grin!)
