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.

Feeling a bit timid about doing it for the first time?  Or maybe you just want try it once for fun.  Whatever your motivation, this activity will give you both the opportunity to try Net Control and the preparation and coaching that will assure your success.
