On Saturday, May 1, the Illinois ARES team will be doing a Simulated Emergency Test from 10 AM to 2 PM. The scenario is an earthquake in the southern part of the state. Simulated emergency messages will be passed locally, throughout the ARES districts and statewide to test message handling and net operation skills. Primary net operations and coordination will be on 3905 kHz. The Illinois Section ICS-205A can be reached through: https://ilares.org/ in the New Files In The Library Post.
An informal wellness net will begin at approximately 1 PM during the SET. All amateur operators are welcome to check in.
