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!

Keep your eyes to the sky this evening in the Sioux Empire. Stay safe! ...

We have an enhanced risk of severe weather for areas along and east of the James River Valley today, bringing a potential for very large hail up to baseball size, damaging wind gusts in excess of 70 mph, and isolated tornadoes. The greatest threat of severe weather is expected to first impact areas west of Interstate 29 by mid-afternoon. The threat will shift eastward into the Interstate 29 corridor in the late afternoon and early evening. Finally, locations along and east of Highway 60 in Minnesota and Iowa will see their greatest threat of severe weather in the mid to late evening. Be sure to stay weather aware this afternoon and evening, and have a way to receive severe weather warnings! (Please visit weather.gov/fsd for more information.)
