About Us

ares-clWelcome to the home page for Piscataquis County ARES. We are a group of Amateur Radio operators living in and around Piscataquis County who have committed provide communications in the event of an emergency. We meet at the Piscataquis County EOC Bunker at 52 Sargent Hill Drive in Milo, ME on the fourth Monday of the month. Our meeting directly follows the Piscataquis Amateur Radio Club meeting, which begins at 7 PM. Any interested person is welcome to attend either meeting.

Piscataquis ARES also conducts a weekly net on the N1BUG repeater (147.105+ MHz, 103.5 Hz tone). This net convenes directly after the Piscataquis Amateur Radio Club on the air meeting, which starts at 7 PM. Guests are encouraged to check into either net.
