Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES)


What is ARES?

Turn on and tune in your amateur (ham) radio to meet the Franklin County ARES team on the Emergency NET on 147.180  with a P.L. tone of 123 at 7 PM WEDNESDAYS (except for the second Wednesday when the team meets face to face.) Remember anyone can listen, but you need the ham radio license to talk.

You are also welcome to the team’s monthly meeting on the third floor emergency communications room at the Franklin County Courthouse at 140 Main Street, Farmington, Maine.
