- Apr 9, 2004Just 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
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
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.
