The Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARESİ) consists of
licensed amateurs who have voluntarily registered their
qualifications and equipment for communications duty in
the public service when disaster strikes. Every licensed
amateur, regardless of membership in
Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL) or any other local or
national organization, is eligible for membership in
the ARES. The only qualification, other than possession
of an Amateur Radio license, is a sincere desire to serve.
Because ARES is an amateur service, only amateurs are
eligible for membership. The possession of emergency-powered
equipment is desirable, but is not a requirement for membership.
