This is the official page for the

Marion County ARES Group and SKYWARN.

The ARES/SKYWARN net has been merged. There is a new preamble on the website for the net control operators to use. Upon completion of the net, please go to http://aresmcfl.org/netreport/ and fill out the form as indicated. This will be used by the Section Manager in his reports to the ARRL. It’s really painless and takes only 1 minute or less to complete.

If an ARES/SKYWARN event happens during the week you are scheduled (Wed – Tues), you are requested to bring up the net as soon as possible until relieved.

The next ARES/SKYWARN meeting will be at the Marion County Emergency Operations Center on Saturday, October 21, 2017 in the Training Room, in conjunction with the monthly MERT meeting.

Starting time 9:00 a.m. These meetings are held jointly with MERT and SKYWARN members in Marion County to foster interoperability, and espirit de corps. We need to work together as a complete group even though we all have different responsibilities.
