What We Do

Greater Manchester ARES currently supports two hospitals and two municipal agencies in Manchester, and other designated sites in the City and several adjacent towns.

As a program of the American Radio Relay League, our training is based on proficient operating practice, on ARRL guidance including elements of the national Incident Command System (ICS), and on the requirements of the supported organizations.

Training net is ordinarily held on the second Monday of each month at 18:00 at designated sites.

In-person training is ordinarily held on the third Thursday of each month at 19:00 at one of the supported organizations.
