Welcome…

Welcome to the Sioux Empire Amateur Radio Emergency Service (SEARES) Website.  This site is dedicated to supporting and promoting ARES operations, emergency communications, emergency preparedness & the service of amateur radio.

ARES is an arm of the Field Organization of the ARRL.  ARES is dedicated to providing radio based backup communications to served agencies in our region. To hone skills as communicators, we provide radio support for a variety of community events such as walks, marathons, races, bikes, or large gatherings requiring communications, both digital and voice.

All radio amateurs are eligible to become general members of ARES. Learn more, become a member, become a served agency, sign-up to receive SEARES announcements, or contact us!

Round 1 of thunderstorms is finished. Round 2 may impact the area overnight, bringing a risk of large damaging hail. Round 3 may bring us our highest risk of severe weather locally. Developing very late Tuesday afternoon and into the evening hours. It's time make sure you have a way to receive a warning. Is your weather radio ready? Your family severe weather plan in place?
