ARES® / RACES
 
 
Berkeley County, Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES)® / Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES) is a member run organization of Berkeley County, SC, based Amateur Radio operators (Hams) who are trained and dedicated to providing radio communications for public service, civil-preparedness and relief agencies during periods of local, regional or national, civil disasters. These disasters may include natural disasters (such as severe weather, fires, floods or earthquakes), man-made disasters (such as structure collapses, chemical spills, nuclear accidents) or acts of terrorism.
To meet the requirements of the Berkeley County Emergency Operations Plan, a member run organization was formed to chart itís own course in training, operations and readiness. This group of volunteers is organized under the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) ARES® program.
Additionally, Berkeley County ARES® members will be registered for operation in the Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES) program. An High Frequency (HF) operating position will allow for communications with State and Federal agencies including SC Emergency Management Division (SCEMD), Shared Resources (SHARES), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), FEMA, and Military Auxiliary Radio Sevice (MARS) stations.

WD4NUN REPEATER CHANGES
The WD4NUN repeater will be down for maintenance in the near future. The date and time cannot be determined.
While the repeater is off-air, the coordination will be moved from the Public Service tower, at the landfill, to the Public Service tower at the Berkeley EOC in Moncks Corner.
This repeater will continue to be operated as a "open" repeater. As before, the repeater can be used for ARES activities at any time, without prior notice. We will make an attempt to post any planned usage on this web page (see below).

MEETING SITE CHANGE
 
Future meetings of Berkeley ARES® will be held off-site from the Berkeley EOC. Please see the MEETINGS page below for details of each month's site.
