To promote and encourage more regular check-is and participation in the PARC ARES nets,  the committee has decided to conduct WEEKLY nets on Thursdays at 7:30 pm local time, rather than on the first and third Tuesdays as we have conducted the nets previously. Additionally we will incorporate pertinent training material into these nets.

The purpose of these nets is to verify which repeaters and operators are capable of responding in an actual communications emergency and to pass information, traffic and training amongst the ARES group in the Texas and Oklahoma panhandle counties.

Please participate in the PARC ARES nets each Thursday at 7:30 pm on any Caprock Intertie linked repeater beginning in November 2011. Visit www.CaprockIntertie.org for repeater information.

To serve as NCS for the PARC ARES Net contact N5TBD ARES Chair or N5YXN ARES Vice-Chair.
