Dayton and Southwest Ohio Weather and Emergency

BARC's home is in Greene County, Ohio, which has an ARES group. The GCARES repeater is 146.9100 (-). The other large ARES group in the Dayton area is Montgomery County ARES (MOCOARES), whose primary repeater is 146.6400- (PL 123). Dayton SkyWarn uses the MOCOARES primary repeater. When SkyWarn is active, MOCOARES switches to their secondary repeater, 444.2500+ (PL 123), if a net, training or real world, is activated.

Both GCARES and MOCOARES are part of Ohio Section, District 3 ARES. The District 3 training net as well as the resource net (real world) uses the WCOARA repeater, 145.1100- (PL 67).

Like BARC, Xenia Weather Amateur Radio Net (XWARN) was formed after the 1974 Xenia, OH, tornado and serves to report severe weather in Greene County on 147.1650+ (PL 100). During severe weather, Dayton SkyWarn monitors the XWARN Severe Weather Net.
