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!

Change of Plans for this Month's SEARES Drill net! To practice our skills at being flexible and prepared we are going to hold a Simplex net on Thursday (10/19) on 146.52 FM simplex. KD0QYR will be the NCS from south east Sioux Falls, but other stations will be needed to ensure we can cover the entire city of Sioux Falls. So, if you have a moderate 2m station and can serve as Backup NCS, make sure to listen! Simplex nets offer an opportunity to hone our operating skills and experience what is like, if our repeater systems are unavailable. Hope to hear you, or your relay check-in on Thursday night at 19:00 CDT on 146.52 MHz FM. ...
