Welcome to the official Union County AUXCOMM / ARES  & Skywarn website.  We hope you enjoyed your visit !  Union County AUXCOM / ARES & Skywarn is focused on providing backup emergency communications using Ham Radio for our served agencies in Union County, North Carolina during a actual event or during an actual emergency.

Union County Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) consists of licensed amateurs who have voluntarily registered their qualifications and equipment for emergency communications duty in the public service during a actual event or when disaster strikes.  Every licensed amateur radio operator regardless of membership in ARRL or any other local or national organization, is eligible for membership in the ARES.  The only qualification, other than the possession of an Amateur Radio license, is a sincere desire to serve and to try to check into at least 50% of the Union County ARES scheduled nets to maintain membership status in Union County ARES and to stay up to date on training and important information.  Because ARES is an amateur service, only amateurs radio operators are eligible for membership.  The possession of emergency-powered equipment is desirable, but is not a requirement for membership.

Look around the Union County ARES website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us.  Please visit us again soon.  We will be adding more material and information.
