Welcome to the Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) for the Alabama Section
of the Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL).
Every licensed amateur, regardless of membership in the ARRL or any other local or national organization is eligible to apply for membership in ARES. Training may be required or desired to participate fully in ARES. Please inquire at the local level for specific information. Because ARES is an Amateur Radio program, only licensed radio amateurs are eligible for membership. The possession of emergency-powered equipment is desirable, but is not a requirement for membership.
ALABAMA ARES HF NET
The Alabama ARES Net is held every Sunday. At 1530CT, we hold the HF Digital net on 7110khz (or 3570khz if 40m has poor propgation) using PSK-31 and then we switch to PSK205RC3 using FLDigi. We also use WINLINK2000, APRS, and DRATS. When Using WL2K, just connect to an RMS on HF and send WX4AL "at" WINLINK "dot" org a message any time during the day of the net. During the Net, we also use APRS (WX4AL-1) and D-Rats on the drats.auburn.edu reflector. At 1600CT, the Alabama Emergency Net on phone is on 7243khz LSB (or 3965khz if 40m has poor propagation). After the HF Net, we continue the net on Alabama DStar Reflector058B. Come Join Us!
