The Western PA chapter of the ARRL has scheduled a Simulated Emergency Test (SET) for April 4, 2020 from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm. Carmine Prestia K3CWP is the EC for Centre County, and he will be coordinating that portion of the test. Bob Snyder KC3KVS is helping Carmine to coordinate PARA’s participation in the test.
The test is based on an assumption of severe flooding or other emergency that has knocked out ordinary means of communications. Under normal circumstances, hams would be stationed at various locations to assist the Red Cross or other agencies to pass messages to and from their headquarters. Due to concerns about the coronavirus, all participants will operate from their base stations for this test.
Please contact Bob Snyder if you wish to participate in the S.E.T. on April 4.
