Who we are, and what we do

We're the Hancock County Amateur Radio Emergency Service. We provide auxiliary communications for Hancock County in Ohio during emergency situations, public service events, such as the Susan G. Komen Walk, and to pass information to the National Weather Service during inclement weather. Head over to "Learn More" to see some of the services we provide and participate in.

Try hopping on our weekly net held every Wednesday at 8pm on the W8FT repeater with a frequency of 147.15+ MHz, and a PL Tone of 88.5 Hz. You do not need to be a member of ARES or HCARES to participate, all hams all welcome.
