SERVING LICKING COUNTY
The purpose of this website is to provide the basic information needed by ARES® volunteers in Licking County, Ohio during an emergency activation as well provide outsiders information about this volunteer group. This website defines the roles and responsibilities of Federal Communications Commission licensed amateur radio operators volunteering for Emergency Communications service in Licking County, Ohio.
The Licking County Net was developed to relay Licking county mobiles to the Central Ohio Weather Net that operates on 146.760. Many locations in Licking county are not able to contact that net and we try to provide a relay service for reports that need to be relayed to NWS via N8WX in Columbus or other means.
Our EC developed a Facebook Group which can be used to track status during severe weather spotting in Licking County. We encourage all ARES members to join the group and monitor status updates issued during storms. If you are a Facebook Member – Enter Licking County ARES in the facebook search box and then join group. You will then be notified about any status changes on your Facebook account or instant messenger/ smart phone link into Facebook. Please help Steve perfect this challenging new technology.
