This page is a jumping off point for information, news, links, and materials for the Northern Southeast Alaska Amateur Radio Emergency Services.



Northern Southeast Alaska ARES

We are comprised of members of the Juneau Amateur Radio Club who have a desire to provide communications in the event of an emergency.   We have members in all parts of Juneau, Gustavus, Haines and Hoonah.  

In addition to emergency communications we provide communications for special events including the 4th of July parade.

We use the JARC linked repeater system for our weekly net, which provides coverage from Juneau to Haines.  Should all parts of the JARC repeater system fail  we also have the ability to use a “stand alone” repeater at Pederson Hill, which covers most of the Juneau area.

Training for ARES members is provided on-line with our extensive links to training material in addition to the weekly net.   We also participate in the annual Field Day , the Simulated Emergency Test, the annual national SkyWarn net and other “on air” events.

For additional information contact , Larry, KL7IWC, Emergency Coordinator Northern Southeast Alaska Amateur Radio Emergency Services.

The Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) net meets on 146.64 and 147.00 Mhz at 19:00 on Tuesdays.
