The OHIO DIGITAL EMERGENCY NET. OHDEN is an Section Level ARES approved NBEMS emergency traffic net. The purpose is to provide a statewide communications conduit between the EMA/EOC'S in Ohio. The net uses sound card digital modes and NBEMS to pass written traffic. The net uses the low frequency HF bands for statewide NVIS coverage. FLDIG is the standard software. District and county level communications are provided at the local level by the DEC/EC's. Each Ohio ARES district and county is encouraged to organize digital capabilities and to liaison to the statewide OHDEN net.

In addition, OHDEN provides training, technical assistance and organizational assistance in support of digital modes and NVIS communications. 

The net meets Tuesdays at 7:45pm on 3585khz OLIVIA 8/500 1khz waterfall.
