Linn County Amateur Radio Emergency Services


Congratulations!  Mike Kearney is the Linn County Sherif's Office

Volunteer of the Year ARES 2016

note: Mike and his wife Barbara KB7ARB moved to Florida last year and arrived just in time for Hurricane Irma. They were assigned to a local High School in Sarasota and Mike and Barb were able to help pass traffic to other shelters. I guess there was not enough 'action' in Linn County for them!


From the September 2016 issue of QST Magazine's article on the Cascadia Rising SET.

ARES is a national organization operating under the auspices of the American Radio Relay League.  It's purpose is to provide communications in the event of emergency. In addition, to hone their skills, many Amateurs provide radio communications during public events, such as races, walks and fund raisers.  LCARES Inc. also works in cooperation and in support of ARES organizations in Linn County .

Regular member meetings are held on the forth Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM in the briefing room of the Linn County Sheriff's Office.
