About Brazoria County ARES

Located on the Texas coast, Brazoria County is presented each year with threats of hurricanes and other severe weather. Brazoria is a rapidly growing county both in population and industry while maintaining the farm and ranch flavor of the old west.

The Brazoria County ARES group consists of federally licensed ham radio operators who are trained in emergency communications and have a strong desire to serve their community whenever the need arises. Amateur operators from throughout Brazoria County, who have an interest in community service and emergency communications, are strongly encouraged to get involved. ARESŪ (Amateur Radio Emergency Service) is a field organization of the ARRL. This site is here to be of service to members of the group as well as the public.

Our weekly net is Monday at 8:00 p.m. on the 145.110 (pl 123.0) Alvin repeater and is a wide area net. All are welcome. Our monthly meetings are on the 2nd Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. at the Angleton Police Department. If you have Google Earth, click link for a KMZ map file. Our main repeater is 147.18 pl 141.3 (also output, if desired) located in Angleton area. Secondary repeater is at 444.900 pl 141.3 located near Freeport.
