ARRL ARES Task Book

posted Feb 25, 2020, 4:53 PM by METERS Webmaster   [ updated Feb 8, 2021, 2:46 PM by Gardener Person ]

The ARRL ARES Task Book has replaced the TN ARES Task Book (which replaced the METERS Task Book) as the guiding document for ARES training. In addition to the link in this announcement, there's a link to that document on our Training/Library page. Please begin working to transfer your completed tasks from the old book into the new one.  (it was recommended that we staple the pages of our TN or METERS task books that have been signed off, with the new one,  so we won't need to have the same requirements signed twice, as long as the requirement in the ARRL ARES book is the same).
