All bulletins and/or announcements will be posted at the above link.  Local ARES groups are manning shelters throughout the state for those fleeing the storm.

The Statewide UHF PRN DMR system will be held for Command/Control with real-time or tactical reports being sent through the Analog System.

2 Operators have been deployed to Berkeley County, SC to assist with shelter operations at the request of their EC. (**one of these is  a buddy of mine)

This information can be found in our Tactical guide at www.ares-sc.org. Too many to list.

Evacuation routes have been reversed to support the effort. The storm track keeps changing and trending to the south. We are literally modifying plans on the fly to meet the needs of the mission. Several ARRL Sections have offered assistance. We are still trying to identify our needs. I would like to thank ARRL HQ, NC, GA, MI, FL and IN for offering assistance. Several Nets including HWN have reached out as well. Again, Thanks to all!

Don't want to step on your thread I have set up a zello channel

the name is NC Florence and has no password can see my post in NC Hometown Hurricne Florence

as of now there is about 12 ARF members registered on the channel. I think we can handle more but if someone wants to start

SC zello channel be my guest.  We used zello for Irma in FL last year and it was helpful for member to connect if they could help someone

or some one needed help.

I am looking for an arfham that might be able to do a wellness check in person on my elderly parents outside Conway SC if all comms are down and let me know how they are by HF.

If anybody has the ability and is willing to try this after the storm please let me know.

thanks

Twenty-four coverage at the State EOC radio room begins at 0800 on Thursday September 13, 2018.

At 0900 SCHEART conducts weekly communications check with healthcare facilities. After the healthcare net, the SCHEART VHF/UHF will remain linked for the duration of the storm. Periodic nets to brief field staff and/or confirm stations will happen at four-hour intervals. The first net will be at 10:00AM Thursday.

SCHEART Analog VHF/UHF Scheduled Net Times are:
02:00 AM, 06:00 AM, 10:00 AM, 02:00 PM, 06:00 PM, 10:00 PM

SCHEART DMR system is in emergency mode which restricts PRN talk group to South Carolina and terminates all dynamic talk groups.
ARES and AUXCOMM members are requested to monitor the PRN talk group for coordination information and instructions and keep the analog system open for tactical and emergency traffic.

Statewide Simplex Channel is 146.595 with PL of 156.7 Hz and can be used for relaying traffic to the SEOC.

HF operations will begin at noon on Thursday. HF is a back-up to the statewide VHF/UHF network. The published frequencies for SC ARES nets are 3.990 or 3.995 +/- for nights and 7.232 +/- days bands permitting.

State EOC will monitor the SCHEART repeater networks, Simplex and HF frequencies.
Field operators should follow guidance and frequencies listed in the South Carolina ARES and RACES Auxiliary Communication Tactical Communications Guide which is available for download on the http://ares-sc.org/ website.

All amateur radio operators are encouraged to monitor the SCHEART network for updated information from the State EOC and listen to their county designated repeater for local information and reports .
