Welcome to the official website of GWES ERN!

What is GWES ERN?

The GWES EAS Relay Network is a system of decommissioned (and some brand new) broadcast EAS equipment, repurposed by enthusiasts for internal alerting of civil emergencies or hazardous weather, in addition to GWES-originated messages. The network is a revival of GWES Weather Network and its program to relay EAS messages.
