Online Chenango County ARES Form
(NY) ARES/RACES is a voluntary organization of licensed amateur radio operators who
provide emergency communications as a public service to the community. The purpose of
CARES/CRACES is to furnish communications in the event of natural or other disaster when
regular communications fail or are inadequate. Sponsored by ARRL, the ARES functions at
the local level to meet local communications requirements. You do not need to be a member
of either the CVARA or the ARRL to be a member of CARES, (Chenango ARES).
The ARES in each locality
operates under the direction of the Emergency Coordinator (EC) whose function is to direct
the activities of the ARES to maintain a state of readiness. Local SKYWARN Alerts also
function under CARES. Experience has proven that radio amateurs respond more capably in
times of emergency when practice has been conducted in an organized group. There is no
substitute for experience gained before the need arises.

For each of the bands and or
mode that you can operate on, place a check mark in the corresponding box by clicking your
mouse over the box. We have prechecked some of
the check boxes, these are what we call defaults. You may check as many as apply or
uncheck as many that do not apply to your station.
