ARES/RACES 2017 Tactical Communications Plan


SC ARES Tactical plan V4.3

The 2017 ARES/RACES Auxiliary Communications Tactical Guide contains new information on ARES organizational structure, changes in SCHEART repeater information and better clarifies auxiliary communication functions during an emergency.  Latest addition includes new DMR repeaters at Clemson and Pickens.

The V4.3 update release on March 9th is to correct an error in the DMR frequency table.  Murrells Inlet repeater frequency was incorrectly listed and has been corrected to reflect 441.8875 Mhz transmit and 446.8875 receive.  Thanks to W2FTV for reporting the error.
