      Just a heads up...

      The ARRL Ad-Hoc Committee on ARES Communications (ARESCOM) has made a
      progress report to the ARRL Board of Directors.

      The report included a "proposal-in-progress" on the restructuring of NTS
      and ARES to best meet present and future emergency
      communication-response requirements.

      The committee has taken "the long view" of the Amateur Radio Emergency
      Service (ARES) and the National Traffic System (NTS) and their role in
      public service communications including both local/Section and national
      levels.

      The effort will "enhance ARES communications capability to include rapid
      and accurate handling of long-range (inter-state, national and
      international) emergency-related message traffic."

      The ARRL Board of Directors will consider re-defining the joint mission
      of ARES and NTS in its emergency communications roles in addition to the
      application of Winlink 2000 technology which uses Pactor.
