The 2018 edition of the ARES/RACES Tactical Communications Plan is ready for download. The plan has updated information on new repeaters added to the SCHEART network in 2017.
Thanks to all the people who have submitted input this document and those who allow their repeaters to be used by ARES. Most of all, thanks to the many amateur operators who routinely train and exercise ensuring they are ready to support emergency communications for South Carolina.
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.
