The Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) consists of licensed amateurs
their qualifications and equipment for communications duty in the public
service when disaster strikes. Every licensed amateur, regardless of
membership in ARRL or any other local or national organization, is
eligible for membership in the ARES. The only qualification, other than
possession of an Amateur Radio license, is a sincere desire to serve.
Because ARES is an amateur service, only amateurs are eligible for
membership. The possession of emergency-powered equipment is desirable,
but is not a requirement for membership.
The Grayson County Amateur
Radio Emergency Service Net meets the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month
at 9:00PM on the 147.00MHz (+600KHz) Repeater.
