Winnebago County ARES/RACES is an amateur radio public service organization based in Winnebago County, Wisconsin, and is open to all licensed amateur radio operators. ECWEC is the non-profit entity associated with Winnebago county ARES/RACES.
Winnebago County ARES/RACES is a local group of ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Services) & RACES (Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Services) volunteers, all licensed hams, dedicated to serving the public in time of need. We support Winnebago County and provide support for local community events. East Central Wisconsin Emergency Communications (ECWEC) is the non-profit entity associated with Winnebago county ARES/RACES.
Skywarn Recognition Day (SRD) will occur this coming weekend. For our Amateur Radio friends, think of SRD as a "Winter Field Day" type of event, without the focus of emergency power operation.
WX9GRB will be on the air Friday evening, and we will operate the VoIP Hurricane Net from 10pm to 11pm on IRLP 9219. When not connected to them, we will listen to our own IRLP location of 9619.
