Winn Amateur Radio Emergency Services was established in 2006 to meet the emergency communications of Winn Parish after the communication losses of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita of 2005. WARES is an attempt to bring back ham radio in Winn Parish. Winn Parish once had an active organization, however, like so many other communities, interest dwindled.

Our club 2 meter repeater is on 147.060+ located in downtown Winnfield. The tone is 173.8.

Current operations are the support of the Emergency Operations Center at Winn Parish Medical Center. We will also attempt to place other operation centers around the parish as personnel and equipment become available.

Monthly meeting will be held the first Friday of each month at 7:00 PM in the Board Room (or Cafeteria if locked) at Winn Parish Medical Center. In the event of a holiday, the meeting will be the second Friday at the same time and place.

Club officers are as follows:

President

Cory Lee - KC5EWJ

Vice President

Bryant "Tony" Acosta - KE5IUU

Secretary

Quin Hemphill - N5ZWP

Treasurer

Gail Garrett - KF5FB

Office of Editor

Emma "Janine" Lee - KE5JAJ
