Marshall County ARES / RACES Team  

Emergency Coordinator - Chuck Dilts, N9CAD

What’s the Difference?

ARES:  Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES®) is sponsored by the American  Radio Relay League (ARRL).  ARRL has the longest history of public service of any Amateur Radio emergency communications provider organization.

RACES:  The federal government created RACES after WWII.  The FCC addresses the need for Amateur Radio to function as part of a state, county or local  Civil Defense agency in time of national emergency or war.


Who are we?

Marshall County ARES/RACES consists of FCC licensed amateur radio operators that have been trained in emergency communications,  They have volunteered their qualifications and equipment for duty in public service when a disaster happens.  Our group provides support operations as well as a reliable backup system when normal means of communication has failed
