Follow the link below and search for WC-ARES, or search, RACES and choose Williamson County, Texas WCARES/RACES/SKYWARN.

This station is set to broadcast 24/7. So you may monitor when away from your radio, or share with your family and friends to stay current during severe weather activations, or during public service events.

There is a delay from transmission on the 146.64/145.45 repeater, to receiving audio via the phone appTake this into consideration when monitoring a SKYWARN Net. The information will be slightly delayed. This is a function of both internet broadcast system and your cell phone service which are out of our control.

The station is also available via the internet at: 


Moving forward, serving the Williamson County communities.
