If you take a look at the Blogroll on the right hand side of your screen you will notice that we now link exchange with the ARES Ontario Section.

As you know they run a 40m hf Net on Sundays at 1300 Eastern on 7.080 so why not check in and see what they are up to. (Note- Frequency has been corrected)

.

After that if you wanted you could listen to the 2nd region net at 1345 hrs on 3.925 and then after that visit us on 3.742 at 1600 eastern for the Ontario Phone Net.

SET Report -FYI

October 5, 2009

At this time I thought I would bring you up to speed on how things went on the HF Radio side of things during Saturdays SET Exercise.

The Ontario Phone Net in support of Emergency Management Ontario (EMO ARES) supplied Net Control Stations on 3.742 in the 80m band from 0830 hrs to 1500 hours and then again from 1830hrs to 2100 hrs.

Although at this time I do not have all the reports in from the Net Control Stations I can proudly say that we were able to conduct a Province Wide 80m HF Net under what could be called not the best conditions.

All Parts of the Province were heard from (Eastern Ontario to North Western Ontario and all areas in between) at one time or another on the 80m during this Simulated Emergency Test.

Part two of the test will be conducted on Wednesday October 7th… once again on 3.742 with 7.153 as a back up frequency… starting at 0900 hrs and finishing at 1300 hrs

Once the reports are all in and tallied I will post a more detailed report here that will also be submitted to RAC Ontario Section (STM) and  Emergency Management Ontario (EMO ARES) but for now believe me when I make the following statement:

“We Did Good!!!”
