ARES® Connect

ARES program administrators at ARRL HQ will phase out the traditional ARES report forms later this year in favor of an online system called ARES Connect –– a new volunteer management, communications, and reporting system. The new system will allow information to be logged by ARES members and managed through the Field Organization. It does not change how ARES operates when serving a partner entity; it is simply a system that will make managing volunteers and incidents/events easier. Beta testing of ARES Connectbegan in March.


Hawaii Island Amateur/Ham Radio Notes:

The Big Island Amateur Radio Club (BIARC) will participate in the 2018 ARRL Field Day emergency communications exercise this Saturday and Sunday (23-24 June 2018) at Hilo’s Reed’s Bay Hotel. The event is free and open to the public.

Jim Sugg (AH6AE) needs a “patient” ham radio operator “to demo how ham radio works at (the) upcoming emergency preparedness fair in Waimea…on Satuday, August 25, 2018, from 8am-12pm.”  The event will be held at the Mana Christian Ohana Hall near the Kahilu Theatre.  The event is free and open to everyone.  If you can help, call Jim at (808) 747-4500 (mobile).

Please send your Hawaii Island Amateur/Ham Radio news stories to kh6jrm@arrl.net for inclusion in this blog and for submission to our local print, broadcast, and social media.

Thanks for joining us today.
