Our Mission

The New England Digital Emergency Communications Network was created by the linking of several amateur radio digital repeaters, each with emergency power. Communications can be customized for Statewide and Regional configurations using talk groups and time slots.

Inherent in this digital network is an Alerting feature (Call Alert) and Text Messaging. These capabilities, combined with commercial grade repeaters, make this a very resilient system, ready for routine or disaster communications.

The digital protocol utilized is a recognized World Wide standard supported by a dozen equipment manufacturers and published as ETSI TS 102 361. It provides for two simultaneous conversations on each repeater.

Several local organizations support the network with amateur radio operators and technical expertise.

These include:

  1. NEAR-FEST
  2. Metrowest DMR Group
  3. Repeater Research Assn.
  4. Southern NH Digital Group
  5. Southern Maine Digital Group
  6. EWARN - Emergency Warning Amateur Radio Network
  7. CTDARN - Connecticut Digital Amateur Radio Network
  8. CVFMA - Connecticut Valley FM Association
  9. WRRC - West River Radio Club
  10. Falmouth Amateur Radio Association
  11. Coos Co. ARES
  12. Dukes Co. Emergency Management
  13. BARC - Boston Amateur Radio Club
