The ICS 205 form posted here was copied from the previous region 3 website.  It contains all the preplanned repeaters and simplex frequencies that we have permission to use in an emergency and which may be included in the Region 3 Operations Plan.


If there is an emergency before the form is posted, Region 3 will hold a region net on the following repeaters, in priority order:


Primary - W1EDH in Glastonbury

Secondary - KB1AEV linked repeater system -- but defer to statewide nets which take precedence


If the state ARES is at any alert level other than zero, you can reach ARES leadership on the CT-ARES DMR network using talkgroup CT ARES STATEWIDE.
