ARES Connect is Disconnected

The ARRL has announced that ARESConnect will be discontinued after June 2021.

You can read Paul Gilbert KE5ZW’s announcement here.

I was rather vocal about the deficiencies of Connect. It is my opinion that it did not meet the needs of some local ARES organizations – some counties here in Ohio loved it, while others had to maintain a separate system to track information that Connect couldn’t. Suggestions on improving the system were largely ignored by the league. I do not know how many membership dollars were spent on this application, but I am glad the League has made a course correction here. Perhaps this is a sign of good things to come!
