Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES)
The Amateur Radio Emergency Service of Brevard, Inc. , aka, Brevard County ARES Team (BCAT) is a State of Florida Not-for Profit Corporation which 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 ARRL or any other local or national organization, are eligible for membership in ARES. The only qualification, other than possession of an Amateur Radio license and a sincere desire to serve. Because ARES is an amateur radio service, only licensed amateur radio operators (Technician Class or higher) are eligible for membership. The possession of emergency-powered equipment is desirable, but is not a requirement for membership. Although this is the serious side of the hobby, our members enjoy the work we do for our served agencies. To join, just complete these the forms in the Membership Packet.
