ARRL Simulated Emergency Test
October 1 @ 8:00 am – October 2 @ 5:00 pm EDT
From the ARRL:
The SET encourages maximum participation by all radio amateurs, partner organizations, and national, state, and local officials who typically engage in emergency or disaster response. In addition to ARES volunteers, those active in the National Traffic System (NTS), Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES), National Weather Service (NWS) SKYWARN®, Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), and a variety of other allied groups and public service-oriented radio amateurs are needed to fulfill important roles in this nationwide exercise.
The SET offers volunteers an opportunity to test equipment, modes, and skills under simulated emergency conditions and scenarios. Individuals can use the time to update a “go-kit” for use during deployments and to ensure their home station’s operational capability in an emergency or disaster. To get involved, contact your local ARRL Emergency Coordinator or Net Manager.
The DSRC has helped the local Red Cross location over the years. The DSRC’s participation in 2022 S.E.T. is to be determined…. but mark your calendar and check back for any developments. This may include use of our 146.46 repeater during the test.
