October 1 SET

This Saturday, October 1st, sometime after 9am, Greene County ARES will be simulating an emergency, along with many other counties and states. Most often, emergencies cannot be planned. The aim of this exercise is to test out the emergency notification system and subsequent contact by amateurs to a net control after receiving the notification. Directions will be given with the notification as to frequencies and modes to make contact. Further comments will be given at check-in.

Although this is an ARES run exercise, I encourage and hope all amateurs within the area will participate. You do not need to be an ARRL or ARES member. You do not need to be a resident of Greene County. You do not need to be at home or available for a long period. Have an HT or mobile with you during your Saturday morning travels and join the fun.

The notification is sent through a Greene County Hyper-Reach mailing list. If you are not a subscriber and would like to be added, please contact me and I can easily get you added. You can receive the message through email, voice call, and/or SMS text. If you do not wish to be part of Hyper-Reach but wish to participate, indicate that to me instead, and I will send an email alert direct.

Thank you and 73,Elizabeth Klinc, KE8FMJ
