The Amateur Radio Emergency Service of Brevard, Inc. , aka, Brevard County ARES® Team (BCAT) is a State of Florida Non-Profit, 501(c)3 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.
