Well it is official…I was just notified today that I am an official member of ARES, Maine District 4: Piscataquis County, by my county coordinator.

What’s that you say?! What is ARES?

The Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES)

From the ARRL “Public Service Communications Manual”
Chapter One: Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES)
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 or any other local or national organization, is eligible for membership in the ARES.

Technician License
