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:  This activity is for those with experience as a Net Control operator.  Individuals at this activity will gain additional experience operating as both a net control and scribe in a no-stress, low to medium traffic net environment. You will gain experience in net control techniques, logging, and message handling procedures using various third-party message forms and operational traffic.  Those with additional experience and desire will be able to operate the Resource Net as participants travel to and from the event.

Participants will come away with increased confidence in their Net Control skills and abilities.
