As ARES members we should always be prepared to communicate with whatever tools are available and fit the need. DMR communications are becoming much more widespread, and are used almost exclusively at the state level. To help us all become familiar and comfortable with this mode, we will be using DMR for the first ARES net of each month. We will be using Talk Group 721 - Northern Colorado.

"ATTENTION" NEW NET TRAINING / ZOOM TRAINING
For the last few weeks, ARES have been conducting weekly training on the Thursday ARES nets. We have decided to take this one step further and instead of doing our training on our net we will be provide Zoom training to replace our normal net on the third Thursday of the month. We feel that this will provide our trainees a better understanding of the presentations we plan in the future.
Region 1 District 1 covers Larimer and Weld counties in Northern Colorado. We are in the Northeast All Hazards Region. For full details on how ARES is organized in Colorado, visit the state's region/district page.
ARES R1D1 will be conducting our net at 19:00 on Thursdays. The first Thursday of each month will be a DMR net on Rocky Mountain Hams North Talk Group. The remained of the months nets will be analog on the 447.275 repeater.
