October SET

The 2018 Black Swan SET is in the books. Thanks to all of the ARES volunteers who put in time on October 6th, and deployed to assist in the test.

We test our equipment and abilities to assist with communications for emergency services in Coshocton County in time of need.

2018 Field Day

Field Day was held at the Canal Lewisville United Methodist Church’s facility, the Brown Farm. We had a great time operating and the picnic was superb. Thanks again to the culinary expertise of Will, KC8PUW, who kept us well fed.

Thanks to all who came, helped set up and tear down, enjoyed the picnic, and to all the operators that make up a great field day.
