This is the official page for the Marion County ARES Group.
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 tohttp://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.
Next ARES meeting will be at the Marion County Emergency Operations Center Jan 21, 2017 in the Training Room, in conjunction with the monthly MERT meeting.
Starting time 9:00. 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.
