  • ARES Annual Simulated Emergency Test (SET) -- Saturday, 9/19 posted by Christopher Higgins on August 23, 2015
    On Saturday, 9/19/15 at 1300, regardless of your location in San Diego County or Imperial County, please check into your neighborhood Emergency Coordinator's (EC) radio net.

    ARES non-members (Hams at-large), too, are invited to check in at 1300 with the ECs responsible for their neighborhoods.

    To assist you with your check-in, the ARES Comm Plan (which includes a list of ECs, neighborhoods, repeaters, and protocols) will be available on the ARES web site,

    After you check in with your EC, your call sign will be posted on to acknowledge your check-in.

    The SET will run from 1300 to 1700. After the 1300 roll call of all Hams (expected to last for one hour), the ECs, the SEC, and others will conduct a variety of radio checks with disaster response agencies across Southern California.

    We will publish more information on the SET as plans finalize.

    Thank you.

    . . . Rob
    ARES Training Coordinator.
  • Weekly Voice Message Practice Net posted by Christopher Higgins on July 14, 2015
    The San Diego Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) hosts a weekly Voice Message Practice Net. All licensed amateur radio operators are welcome. We gather Wednesdays at 1900 local. We have graciously been offered use of the K6XI Community Hangout repeater on Mt. Otay. Repeater output is 449.440 with a standard offset (-) of 5 MHz and a PL of 107.2.

    The objective of the Net is to give all amateur radio operators a "safe" place to develop their formal voice message sending and receiving skills. This will improve our ability to provide efficient and 100% accurate message handling for our served agencies. We welcome all licensed hams to participate, not just those affiliated with ARES. PLEASE PASS THE WORD.

    Please join us, or at least listen in. You may copy the practice message on an ICS Form 213 or on a blank sheet of paper.
