If you want to monitor the ARES nets for northern Colorado. Don't call in unnecessarily, these are not general info nets like normal. But if you need help immediately or can offer help to something you hear specifically, you could make a request by asking to be recognized by the net controller. All the stations you hear have trained and practiced together, it's not really an ad-hoc net.

I've been listening to 146.760 for the last several days. They are definitely filling a need for communication in areas that have lost phone and power.

My favorite transmission today was an offer from Bicycle Longmont to donate some bikes to a shelter so people could around without their cars.

A lot of the NG traffic up here has been on civilian public service frequencies, so probably fire departments and sheriffs issued radios to them. Haven't been able to figure out air traffic amongst the helicopters but the ARES guys periodically pass info between services including aircraft. My guess is they are using mutual aid channels, maybe digital and probably in 700/800MHz.
