ARES Net Information

The Stark County ARES under the direction of Emergency Coordinator Evan Rankl, KE8IDH operates a weekly training ARES Net. The purpose of the net is to facilitate the exchange of information and advise area amateurs of current news in the Emergency Services. One of the area’s oldest continuously operating service nets, we have operated weekly ARES Nets for over 45 years!

The Stark County ARES Net is under the direction of Net Manager Michele Bales – KC8ZEJ, who manages the general operation of the net.

The net convenes every Tuesday night at 7:00 PM local time. Initial check-ins are taken by roster roll call with preference given to low power mobile & portable stations. The net is then open to all listening stations, and you are both welcomed and encouraged to check-in. Please join us if you are in the area. Any traffic from the check-ins stations is then handled as well as any general announcements for the good of the general amateur community. This usually entails Hamfest announcements, net schedules, public service events to name a few.

Net Control Operators for January are posted below.

Thanks to efforts by our Net Manager Michele, KC8ZEJ, we now have a current list of Net Control Operators for our Stark Co ARES Weekly Net.

Providing news of interest to the local amateur community and maintaining a contingent of highly trained & skilled Amateur Operators, this is the mission of your Stark County Amateur Radio Emergency Service!
