Sevier County Amateur Radio Emergency Service (SCARES)

Weekly Net every Thursday at 6:30 PM on the 146.850 repeater.

Monthly Meeting on 4th Thursday at 6:00 PM at the King Family Library in Sevierville.

Please join us for the Weekly Net or Monthly Meeting, we have an Open Door Policy !

All participants shall have a valid Amateur Radio license issued by the Federal Communications

Commission. All participants must have a serious interest in providing volunteer radio communications

support in an emergency. All participants shall have an interest in self-improvement and maintaining

standards for excellent community service.

Previously, participation in ARES was open to all interested Amateur Radio operators. The only

requirements were a valid FCC license and an interest in serving. There were no requirements for ARES

participants to be trained and no skill sets were specified. In contrast, many of the partner agencies that

ARES serves have mandated and structured training programs where all participants receive the same

training and, when activated, or assigned to serve an agency in the field would be qualified to assume any

position to which they were assigned.

No matter your affiliation with another Amateur Radio Service or Organisation, we invite you to join us for our Weekly Nets and/or Monthly Meetings, we have an Open Door Policy !
