Who Are We?

Enjoying Our Hobby While Serving Our Community!

 The Amateur Radio Emergency Service® (ARES) consists of licensed  amateurs who have voluntarily registered their qualifications and  equipment, with their local ARES leadership, for communications duty in  the public service when disaster strikes. 

To register, download the FSD-98 file (below), complete it and send it to the address given at the bottome of the page.

From the Federal Communications Commission


"The FCC [Federal Communications Commission] established amateur radio as a voluntary, non-commercial, radio communications service. It allows licensed operators to improve their communications and technical skills, while providing the nation with a pool of trained radio operators and technicians who can provide essential communications during emergencies."
