Attention: Steel City members we have been ask to participate in this drill on Saturday April 2nd. As you can see below we will not know what is needed before the morning of the event. Our club station does quite well on the 60m band and maybe Mike or Bob can give us a refresher course on how to handle traffic some Wednesday night social meeting.
I made the announcement on this morning’s ARES net (less than great band condx) but still wanted to get the word out to the WPA section ECs with spring SET exercise information.
We’re doing things differently this spring…the date will remain the same, the first Saturday in April, the 2nd and run times will remain the same with the following change- the exercise scenario will only be given out during the ARES net that morning. participating counties will have from 0930-1000 to get their response organised and the exercise will run from 1000-1230 hrs.
In addition to the standard FM radio operations there will be HF radiogram traffic and 60m testing. Our served agencies will only be the American Red Cross, National Weather Service and the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency.
Best 73s and press on!
