We Are Volunteers
Written by Site Admin   

When emergency agencies are required in areas where a disaster has occurred, their regular means of communications can be affected as a result of the disaster. That creates the need for a supplemental or back-up communications system, one that comes complete with equipment and trained operators, all at no cost to the public or the agency involved.  In fact, these men and women are volunteer members of the Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES).


What’s The Difference?
Written by Site Admin   

Do you know the difference between ARES and RACES?

From ARRL.org: Emergency service is one of the basics of the Amateur Radio Service and there is sometimes come some confusion about ARES, the ARRL arm of emergency services and RACES, the government arm of amateur emergency services.

What Is ARES?

The Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES®) is a volunteer radio communications service available to federal, state, county and local government, as well as not-profit organizations. ARES® consists of amateur radio operators nationwide who have voluntarily registered their services and formed an organized pool of resources to provide reliable primary or secondary communications links for governmental agencies and/or not-profit organizations when needed.
