NeARES officially a NON-Profit Corporation in Nebraska

NeARES has officially became a non-profit corporation registered with the Secretary of State in Nebraska. It’s taken some time to complete all task’s but, we’re done and can move forward with our mission and goals. We are a member less organization as we don’t want to be competitive with any other like organization within the Section of Nebraska. Our goal is to bring like organizations together to form a large scale statewide team in support of ARES, SkyWarn and other events that may come. Our mission is based solely on philanthropy. Through the use and distribution of  donated funds and materials to smaller organizations where a need is present, acting as technical advisers and assisting those organizations where possible, we hope to achieve our goals in building the large scale statewide network of teams.

The purpose of the corporation is the advancement of the science of electronic communication through the education and instruction of its members and others, including but not limited to, owning and operating an amateur radio station or stations and providing emergency communication services to city, county, state and Federal authorities, American Red Cross, and other duly constituted charitable, educational or public authorities. No part of its income or net earnings are to inure to the benefit of or be distributable to its members, directors or officers or to any private individual. The corporation shall not issue any stock. To assist like organizations as technical advisors and assistants where needed in the implementation and installation of communications equipment allowing said organization to fulfill volunteer duties in a manner prescribed by the ARRL Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) Strategic Plan. This can include the repurposing of donated communications equipment to said organizations where funding is limited and a real need is demonstrable.

Our Board of Directors are:

Ed Holloway, KØRPT: President

Mike Gill, WØMEG: Vice President

James Nelson, WØJRN: Secretary

Greg Brown, KTØK: Treasurer

If you like our mission and goals and would like to donate to NeARES, please contact Greg Brown, KTØK at kt0k@windstream.net or any of our Board of Directors. A page on our website will reflect those donors. Being tax exempt, you can write off those donations yearly.


I want to thank Jim Nelson, WØJRN for doing the foot work to complete the tasks and the Board of Directors for taking on the task of leading this organization!





ARES/SkyWarn Happenings

ARES/SkyWarn  Happenings

The storm season is upon us and that means we’re ramping up for activations and some “Eye’s In The Sky” fun. There are some changes this year in point locations and we’ve added a new point. Additional changes include repeater assignments. We’re in the process of completing Storm Spotter Packets for 2021 that will include all of the new information. We will produce a video and post it on Neares.net for all spotters to watch before getting the 2021 Spotters Packet. We also need to have everyone update your ARES registration. With the merge of Sprint and T-Mobil, email addresses and Text Alert data has changed. Please visit https://neares.net/ares-membership/ and complete an update.

The system will not send you an e-mail but, it will me and I can update you in the database. 2021 Spotter Packets will go out to those who have updated the ARES registration and watched the video that contains all the new information for the 2021 storm season.

Thanks for your participation!
