2012 SET (Simulated Emergency Test) Sunday, October 14, 2012, 3-6PM


Our 2012 SET (Simulated Emergency Test) is scheduled for Sunday, October 14, 2012, 3:00-6:00 PM. The drill will be our response to a simulated (hopefully not real) tornado.

We sure would like to have you join us this year. All hams are welcome. You don't need to be an ARES member or be experienced in emergency communications. A special welcome goes out to newly licensed hams!

Our goal is to address the strengths and weaknesses of last year's SET and to significantly improve our performance this year. Yes, we had a great SET last year, but we can certainly improve. 2011 SET Results from the July QST, pp 68-70, listed GA as first in the country and N Fulton Co (W4UOC) at 9th (533 points) out of the 208 entries (Top 5%).

Here is the link to the past locations and volunteers to use for our 2012 SET:
This link shows the hams who have already signed up (in black print) and it will continuously be updated. Note the revision date in cell B1. (Names in gray print volunteered for the 2011 SET) All locations are available plus any new incident or shelter sites that you would like to create.

We'll discuss our plans at our next NFARES and NFARL meetings, Sunday night NFARES 8:30PM nets, 147.06 (+) PL 100.0Hz, and by e-mail.

Please let us know if you are interested in being part of our 2012 SET program by replying directly to Mike - AD4MC (ad4mc.mike@gmail.com).

Even if you cannot make a firm commitment yet, you can still sign up as a volunteer.
