SCTE has partnered with the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on their high
frequency (HF) radio network program– SHAred RESources or SHARES for short. The program
administered by DHS’s National Coordinating Center for Communications (NCC), provides a means for
users with a national security, essential service and emergency preparedness mission to communicate
when landline, satellite, public safety and cellular communications are unavailable. This document’s
purpose is to provide an easy to follow guide to help cable industry staff understand the requirements for
participating in SHARES.
