Standard Amateur Radio EMCOM Frequencies

 in Licking County

The following chart lists standardized frequencies/tones  and Alpha Tags for Licking County EMCOM Operations.  ARES and CERT members are encouraged to use this list when programming their own radios at least on the channels supported by the equipment.  Amateur Radios at our Served Agencies also use this list to maximum extent possible to simplify operations with multiple operators.  Primary Public service monitoring services are included but users may wish to select other frequency channels depending on individual circumstances. Please program your radio to not transmit on any frequencies other than what you are licensed for. If your radio supports alpha numeric tags, please use the standardized tags to aid someone else using your radio.
