Welcome To Mahoning County ARES

The Amateur Radio Emergency ServiceĀ® (ARES) consists of licensed amateurs who have voluntarily registered their qualifications and equipment, with their local ARES leadership, for communications duty in the public service when disaster strikes.

Every licensed amateur, regardless of membership in ARRL or any other local or national organization is eligible to apply for membership in ARES. Training may be required or desired to participate fully in ARES.  Because ARES is an Amateur Radio program, only licensed radio amateurs are eligible for membership. 

Repeaters.  Mahoning County is fortunate to have multiple repeaters  covering our area and access to many of the repeaters in adjacent counties.  Locally the main repeaters are WRARC on 145.270 (KD8DWV ), MVARA on 146.745 (W8QLY), and 20/9 ARC on 147.315 (K8TKA ).
