What is HCARES?
The Humboldt County Amateur Radio Emergency Service
is a group of motivated amateur radio operators trained and ready to
handle emergency traffic when all other modes of communication are down.
The Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) consists
of licensed amateurs who have voluntarily registered their qualifications
and equipment for communications duty in the public service when disaster
strikes. Every licensed amateur, regardless of membership in ARRL(Amateur
Radio Relay League) 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.
