Milledgeville Amateur Radio Club

Baldwin County Amateur Radio Emergency Service


A primary responsibility of the Amateur Radio Service, as established by Part 97 of the Federal Communications Commission’s regulations, is the performance of public service communications for the general public, particularly in times of emergency when normal communications are not available. To that end, the  Georgia Section Amateur Radio Emergency Service members, under the oversight of the American Radio Relay League, will equip themselves and train to provide communications as a direct service to the general public through government and relief agencies located in Georgia, local government jurisdictions, the State of Georgia, and Federal Agencies when requested by those agencies.

Put simply, BCARES has 3 main responsibilities:

  • Disaster Preparedness

  • Emergency Communications

  • Public Service Communications


The Baldwin County ARES net meets each Tuesday, 8:00pm local time, on the WB4DOJ (146.700 - 67 Hz. tone) repeater. During an emergency, the WB4DOJ will be the primary repeater, and the backup repeater is KE4UWJ (147.135 - 123 Hz. tone). The simplex frequency will be 146.52 or 146.94 MHz.

The Georgia ARES Net meets on Sunday, 3975 KHz at 6:00pm local time during daylight savings time and 5:00pm local time during the rest of the year.
