Nation Wide ARES - RACES - EMCOMM - Public Service - Frequencies

The following list includes ARES & RACES frequencies in the Amateur Radio service. The list also includes emergency frequencies in other radio services, including: Citizens Band (CB), Family Radio Service (FRS), General Mobile Radio Service (GMRS) and Multi-Use Radio Service (MURS). For those frequencies outside of the Amateur Radio service, an FCC type accepted radio is required.

It should be noted that, with the exception of the 60-meter band, HF voice operations standardize on lower sideband on 160-meters through 40-meters and upper side band on 20-meters through 10-meters. Voice operations on 60-meters are on upper side band only and use channelized operations. Digital operations, regardless of the HF band, standardize on using upper side band.
