NATIONAL NEWS

1. Simulated Emergency Test Dates

The Simulated Emergency Test (SET) is an annual emergency
communications exercise, administered by ARRL and RAC. Both the
Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES) and the National Traffic
System (NTS) are involved.  The SET gives communicators the
opportunity to focus on the emergency-communications capability
within your community, while interacting with NTS nets.

For Canada EXCEPT Ontario, the SET will be held October 16.
Ontario will be holding its provincial SET at a later date, to be
announced after October 23.   Individual ARES units and other groups
are free to conduct their SETs anytime between September 1 and
November 30 if an alternative date is preferred. The activity period
should not exceed 48 hours.  For more information visit

-- RAC Web Page



In Chatham, participation in the SET is a condition of having our repeater equipment at CBC facilities. Fortunately, our SET appears to be later this year, which puts it after the election.

Please keep me in mind when executing the SET.  Being later also helps me personally.  One of these days I'll actually be able to spend some time working with the club on these kinds of activities.  :-)

Let me know when the SET is going to happen.

Thanks

I encourage all groups in Ontario, who are participating in this
year's Simulated Emergency Test, to announce their exercises on the
Ontario Phone Net by way of NTS messages to other groups both within
and outside the province. By doing so you assist with traffic
handling training and help keep our nets solvent. The province-wide
SET date will be announced after October 23rd following a meeting
between EMO and ARES and RAC Field Services.


I also encourage groups holding local exercises to use NTS to promote
your local SET. Your scenario might require the help of non-local
amateurs to relay exercise traffic.  By advising neighbouring groups
of your plans, that assistance is more likely to be available.
