Amateur Radio in Support of Shelby County, Ohio, Emergency Management Agency. Amateur radio repeater call signs K8ZUK, 146.835 (-), Tone 156.7Hz and KE8BCY, 443.200 (+), Tone 156.7Hz.

Shelby Co. A.R.E.S.® (Amateur Radio Emergency Services), is an organization comprised of about forty licensed amateur radio operators. The members of this organization volunteer their time and equipment for use during emergency, and non-emergency communications situations.

Shelby Co. A.R.E.S., supports agencies such as, Shelby County EMA, American Red Cross, Salvation Army, Shelby Co. Health Department, Shelby County Sheriff, Sidney Police, Shelby County Chamber of Commerce, and any other agency or organization, in Shelby, or surrounding counties, requesting our assistance to provide emergency communications. Our operators are also trained by members of the National Weather Service, to spot and report severe weather, relaying important information via amateur radio, directly to the National Weather Service. The NWS may issue warnings based on our information. This part of the amateur service is known as Skywarn.

Some of our communications include the support to the Sheriff, and police, for missing children. We have manned shelters and supplied communications for flood, and winter storm victims. We are activated during severe weather for Skywarn, and we support the community in providing communications for parades, bike-a-thons, festivals,
etc.

Our organization is a 501 c 3, Non-Profit organization recognized by the Federal Government. We rely on fundraisers, and donations, to support our needs for radio equipment, and maintenance, of both of our amateur repeaters, and our mobile communications vehicles SCARES I and II.
