Our weekly net is held every Tuesday evening at 7:30 p.m. est.

Business meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. at the Jennings County EMA training Center 1001 Rodgers Park Dr. North Vernon

JCARA Welcomes DMR to our system.  Zone Name is Scipio. For more information visit the Hoosier DMR website.

Our Repeaters are located at 400 ft on the WWWY 106.1 F.M. tower in Scipio Indiana. Courtesy Of the White River Broadcasting Company.

Bridgecom ComLink BCR 2 Meter on 145.250 mhz No PL tone.

Amplifiers are Henry 100 watt continous duty.

Bridgecom ComLink BCR 70cm on 442.975 mhz with  PL tone 103.5

Both Repeaters are available for all to use and enjoy ! However during Central Indiana Skywarn Events, The 442.975 will be dedicated to National Weather Service Net Control Operations located at the NWS in Indianapolis.

You are able to monitor severe weather reports from the entire Central Indiana Skywarn System in real time on 442.975 mhz with a  pl of 103.5.

During severe weather, this frequency is ONLY for Central Indiana Service Area County Nets to report back to the Central Indiana Skywarn net control.

Please do not make INDIVIDUAL reports to the National Weather Service on 442.972. The Central Indiana Skywarn Team stays very busy during weather events, and taking non life threatening individual reports consumes their resources needlessly.

 Those INDIVIDUAL reports should go through your local County Skywarn Net or 145.250.

If you are not sure if your county is served by Central Indiana Skywarn, please refer to their service area map Central Indiana Skywarn Service Area

Of course, in the event of a life-threatening situation, which requires the immediate attention of the National Weather Service, the 442.975 is your direct link to them.


The Jennings County Skywarn Net will be operated on the 145.250 no PL repeater, and will be available to pass traffic to the State Net when requested.
