CollinARES is supported by local clubs and allow us the use of their repeaters
Located in the county of Collin, TX, we were organized in 1975 by a group of amateurs who had a strong desire to serve their community and provide emergency communications. We are not a club, but consist of a collection of individuals that wish to serve various served agencies.
The primary function of Collin County Amateur Radio Emergency Services or CollinARES, is to support our Served Agencies. Supported agencies, but not limited to include the National Weather Service, Red Cross, Homeland Security and The Department of Health Services.
