3.2. Interface between ARES and NTS

In recent exercises the Section has attempted to route most taffic through NTS. This leads to a large number of advantages, and has worked well. However, improvements are still possible. A few of the shortcomings noted:
  • NTS operators do not always know what frequency to report to or when
  • ARES operators are unaware of nets or their capabilities
  • ARES operators are unfamiliar with NTS procedures
  • ARES operators are unfamiliar with directed nets
  • NTS operators are unfamiliar with ARES procedures and organization
  • NTS leadership does not take ownership of emergency operations
