Provide Disaster Communications as a SATERN Volunteer

You can provide The Salvation Army with auxiliary & emergency radio communications—along with technical support—during disasters and special events as an Emergency Disaster Services SATERN volunteer.

Members volunteer under the direction of a Salvation Army staff member or a staff appointed volunteer leader with experience. Members are required to be current on all of The Salvation Army training requirements.

July 24th Simplex Exercise

Is your station prepared for effective simplex operation? How rusty are your message passing skills? Here’s your chance to find out…

A portion of the July 24th Net will be spent practicing simplex message passing on 146.520 Mhz.

This exercise will commence after check-ins are completed on the W0ILO linked repeater system. The net will temporarily move to 146.520 Mhz under the direction of who will become the NCS for duration of this exercise.

More information about the July 24th Simplex Exercise—including a description of how operations will be conducted—is available in KC0ODE’s mailing list announcement.

The Conspiracy That Never Was

ARRL has built an infrastructure for EmComm within our public service organization that we call the Amateur Radio Emergency ServiceĀ®, or ARESĀ®. This is both an organization and a framework for people to volunteer, take needed training, join a local group, and then practice or drill to ensure readiness when required. It is the responsibility of your Section Manager to ensure that the position of Section Emergency Coordinator (SEC) is staffed and managing emergency communications.
