Weekly Radio Net
The WCARES net is held each Monday at 1900 CST through the linked repeater system. The net is a controlled net; all traffic and comments should be directed through the net control operator. The net is open to all Amateurs.
On the first Monday of each month, stations are asked to use alternative power if possible to communicate with the net as an exercise in emergency readiness.
Emergency Weather Net
In the event of severe weather, the WCARES Weather Net will be activated upon request by the county EOC. The controlled net is open to all Amateurs. All stations are asked to restrict reports to the information covered in the WCARES Severe Weather Reporting Guide to facilitate the net control operator and NWS Liason operator.
