Amateur Radio Emergency Service
.The Amateur Radio Emergency ServiceŽ (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.
ARES Membership Requirments
Every licensed amateur, regardless of membership in ARRL or any other local or national organization is eligible to apply for membership in ARES. Training may be required or desired to participate fully in ARES. Please inquire at the local level for specific information. Because ARES is an Amateur Radio program, only licensed radio amateurs are eligible for membership. The possession of emergency-powered equipment is desirable, but is not a requirement for membership. There is a ARES Net on the W4GGM VHF Repeater 147.12 (tone 127.3) every Sunday night at 8:30 PM CST. On Monday nights at 8:00 PM there is a MTEARS Net on the W4GGM UHF Repeater 443.175 (tone 100.0) that is linked to the MTEARS Network.
If you would like to join the local ARES, you can download and fill out the ARES Application. Bring it to a MARC Club Meeting or mail it to the MARC, P.O. Box 1871, Columbia, TN 38402
