Williamson County Amateur Radio Emergency Service, WC-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. We are located in Williamson County, Texas, USA, normally meet on the 2nd Thursday of the month at the Williamson County ESOC, 911 Tracy Chambers Lane, Georgetown TX 78626. Due to COVID-19 our monthly meetings are held via restricted Zoom video conferencing. If you are not a member and interested in attending our meeting you need to contact EC@wc-ares.org for approval prior to the meeting.
Our meetings start at 7:30 PM and we try to have a Guest Speaker, ARES Topic or Training at each meeting which last for about an hour. The only thing “Amateur” about this group is in the name. We strive to provide the most Professional Radio Operators possible. We support both government and non-government organizations with emergency communications in times of emergency.
As outlined on the Amateur Radio Relay League, ARRL website, the Amateur Radio Emergency Service® (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. Please inquire at the local level for specific information. Because ARES is an Amateur Radio program, only licensed radio amateurs are eligible for membership. The possession of emergency-powered equipment is desirable but is not a requirement for membership.
The second requirement is a desire to serve.
