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!

Visit Facebook for the full conversation (replies, comments, and images).

I would like to invite everyone to the Prairie Patriots net every Monday night at 2030 hours on the State Link.
Everyone is welcome, and please inform net control that you are an ARES member so we can track activity.

Thank you.

Hello all! I'm looking to reduce some of the ham hardware I have. So.. I am parting with:

Kenwood TS-2000 (Gigaparts refurb with maybe 10 hours on it since)
Kenwood TH-D72A
Yaesu FT-8900R
Diamond quad band antenna for the 8900R
Signalink for the TS-2000
Pyramid power supply to power the TS-2000

Most of the hardware was not used that much other than for Bike MS.

Please let me know if anyone is interested in any of it. I will start posting in other locations outside of the group late this week, but thought I'd give all of you first chance at anything that may be of interest.
