Countywide Exercise & SET • Shadow-Introductory

Date: 09/28/19 Start: 8:00 AM End: 1:00 PM Location: Edith Morley Park, Campbell
Credential Credit (What's this?): Yes

Overall Event:  This is a county-wide communications exercise focused on emergency communications.  It is designed to provide participants with valuable in-field operating experience.  It will include several fun and challenging assignments.  This event will also serve as our annual ARRL Simulated Emergency Test (SET) drill for 2019.

Scenario:  Are you new to being a shadow? If you have recently taken the Shadowing Level III class and never had the opportunity to be the communicator for a principal, then this activity is for you. We will pair you up with an experienced principal who can also mentor you what it takes to be a shadow while you perform all radio communications on behalf of the principal.

Please plan for the duration of an assignment to be about one hour, but you could stay on the job longer if we don't have more operators lined up requesting to take their turn. This activity is the equivalent of a "pop up practice" but we provide the principals and an event net.

Location:  Edith Morley Park, Campbell

DSW:  You need a County DSW registration to participate. If you do not have a valid County DSW registration you will be able to register for DSW at the event.
