Welcome to Southeast Louisiana Emergency Communications Service located in New Orleans, Louisiana. Also known as ARES of Southeast Louisiana, SELCOM is a not for profit disaster relief organization providing communications and logistical support to disaster relief organizations during ongoing disaster and recovery operations. In 2007, we acquired all E.A.R.S. Assests in New Orleans. In 2009, the remaining members of the NOVHF Club merged into our organization. We now maintain the 146.775 repeater and have added the 224.120 & 444.825 repeaters. We support the KD5QZD-1 APRS digipeater at one of our downtown sites as well as working on a VHF packet BBS. The W5MCC Digi is monitoring on 145.01 & 446.100.
