San Diego Section (SDG) ARES covering San Diego County and Imperial County, California
San Diego Amateur Radio Emergency Service (SDG ARES) consists of licensed amateurs who have voluntarily registered their qualifications and equipment with their local ARES leadership for communications duty in the public service when disaster strikes. In late November 2019, this forum replaced the YahooGroup used by SDGARES for the past 10+ years. We use this forum to inform amateur radio (ham) operators about SDG ARES meetings and training events, and we use this forum to share and discuss training materials, technology, and ham radio methods. To join San Diego ARES (SDGARES) officially, first please register as a new member of ARES at When you join, please include your call sign in your "DisplayName" (UserName) for the group, such as FirstName CallSign.
