About the Driven Elements Amateur Radio Group


The DEARG is a modern emergency communication training and response group for Lawrence County Arkansas. We provide training in the different Digital Voice, Digital software formats and Computer programs used in emergency communication among the different agencies that may require our assistance during the time of a county, state or nationwide disaster or event.


A large number of served agencies in Arkansas are rolling over to digital modes using computers and radios together for transferring information. The Arkansas Department of Health and area hospitals are among those, they are installing D-Star radios to handle traffic using a digital radio format with software for transferring files from hospital to hospital and to the department of health.


ADEM (Arkansas Department of Emergency Management) is also transitioning to a similar system for transferring files and information. This is an analog radio system but converting files and forms to computer files that can be transferred via radio in a similar fashion as the internet, but not dependent on the internet.


Voice communications will always play a part in emergency communication, but in this modern age, it is important to keep up with the advances in technology that are being used by our served agencies. In this way, we may assist them when we are needed.


This website also includes information and orientation material that is used with the different agencies we may be required to assistance.
