ARLB024 The 2021 ARRL Simulated Emergency Test (SET) is Just Ahead

The weekend of October 2 – 3 is designated for holding the annual
ARRL Simulated Emergency Test (SET), although local and
Section-level exercises may take place throughout the Fall. The SET
is ARRL’s primary national emergency exercise and is designed to
assess the skills and preparedness of Amateur Radio Emergency
Service (ARES) volunteers, as well as those affiliated with other
organizations involved in emergency and disaster response.

The SET encourages maximum participation by all radio amateurs,
partner organizations, and national, state, and local officials who
typically engage in emergency or disaster response. In addition to
ARES volunteers, those active in the National Traffic System (NTS),
Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES), National Weather
Service (NWS) SKYWARN, Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), and
a variety of other allied groups and public service-oriented radio
amateurs are needed to fulfill important roles in this nationwide

The SET offers volunteers an opportunity to test equipment, modes,
and skills under simulated emergency conditions and scenarios.
Individuals can use the time to update a “go-kit” for use during
deployments and to ensure their home station’s operational
capability in an emergency or disaster. To get involved, contact
your local ARRL Emergency Coordinator or Net Manager.
