Disaster Communications For Our Served Agencies

Difference between ARES and RACES

Mecklenburg County (ARES) is comprised of FCC licensed Amateur Radio Operators who have voluntarily registered their capabilities and equipment for public service communications. Under Federal regulations, Amateur Radio operators cannot receive compensation of any kind for providing public service communications.

The primary responsibility of the Mecklenburg ARES is to furnish communications in the event of disaster or other event, when regular communications fail or become inadequate for served agencies to perform their duties. During ARES activation or exercise or any other Special Events call sign will be NC4DP.

For more information about Mecklenburg County ARES, send email to Cliff Greene WB4NCQ

Note: NC4DP is registered to W4BFB Mecklenburg Amateur Radio Society.

Packet RMS Gateways now Require Password Logon .
When using a Packet RMS Gateway you will be given a 3 digit challenge code. To log in you must enter the characters of your password that correspond to the digits in the challenge code. Example: if your password is ABCDEFG and the challenge code is 146 then you would enter ADF followed by 3 random characters to log in. A is the 1st letter of your password, D is the 4th letter of your password and F is the 6th letter of your password. The challenge number indicates which characters of your password you need to enter. This log in method eliminates the need to transmist your entire password where other users can read it every time you check in via packet radio.
