IARU Announces GlobalSET 2009

On Saturday November 14, 2009, from 1800 to 2200 UTC, the International Amateur Radio Union will activate GlobalSET 2009, a Global Simulated Emergency Test that encourages Hams to pass simulated emergency traffic using standard National Traffic System format.

The Radio Amateurs of Canada, a member society of IARU Region 2, encourages all Canadian Radio Amateurs having an interest in emergency communications to participate.

Rules and a list of participating stations may be found at Search under the heading, Emergency Communications, working group.

This is great opportunity for RAC members to observe and practice important traffic passing skills that are so important to the fundamentals of the Amateur Radio Emergency Service.

Those Amateurs planning to participate are requested to register with the RAC Vice President for Field Services as soon as possible by emailing vo1dtm @ .
