ARES Info

2-mtr Slim-JimARES is the Amateur Radio Emergency Service and is a service branch of the American Radio Relay League.  ARES is made up of amateur radio operators who have registered their time and equipment in order to be a useful communicator in times of disaster. 

To join ARES in Tennessee, contact your county Emergency Coordinator (EC).  Your county EC can be found by going to the internet site: www.tnarrl.org/. Or you could visit a local ham club meeting and ask who the EC is for that county.

Emergency VHF Antennas


The advantage of the slim-jim over the j-pole is that there is a 3 dB gain with the slim-jim and the main angle of radiation is lower. It is simple to build.  Check out some of the files below or search the internet.
