Training Nets

CollinARES typically holds two on-the-air training nets per month. You need not be a member to check-in.

Nets begin at 21:00 hrs (9:00pm local) and last 20 minutes to an hour. Some nets may be cancelled due to holidays or if a large number of our members have participated in a major exercise or event that weekend.

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.
