SET Info

Several ARES groups in New York State are having SET exercises tomorrow October 2, 2010. All groups will be originating traffic to be passed via NTS HF nets through the day. I would like to encourage any and all groups in Ontario to announce their exercises on the Ontario Phone Net by way of NTS messages to other groups both within and outside the province. By doing so you assist in training in traffic handling and keep our nets solvent. The province-wide SET date will be announced after October 23rd following a meeting between EMO and ARES and FS interests which is scheduled for that date in Toronto.

All ARES groups in Ontario which are holding local exercises are encouraged to utilize NTS to promote your local SET. It may be necessary, depending on the scenario of the exercise to require the use of non-local amateurs to relay exercise traffic, and by advising neighbouring groups of your plans, you increase the probability of having such assistance available.
