As the pages are under construction, please check back often for updates. I originally built this site back in 1998 for Amateur Radio Emergency Service here in the state of Oregon. Although this information will still be available, the new direction will now focus on a wide variety of Amateur Radio topics. If there is any subject you would like to see, please send me an e-mail and I will review your request and get it posted if its in alignment with my new homepage direction.

ARES - Amateur Radio Emergency Service

Brief History
Throughout our history, we amateurs have established a reputation for public service communications which is of the greatest importance to our continued occupation of frequencies. At first, this service was rendered spontaneously and on an individual basis. As time progressed, the need for and value of organization became evident, resulting in the establishment of organized trunk lines and net systems; later the Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) and the National Traffic System (NTS) were formed to complete the organization. The Field Organization includes the combined facilities of the Amateur Radio Emergency Service, as it has developed since 1935, and the National Traffic System, which was begun in 1949.
