SATERN Thanks Amateurs for Responding to Call for Assistance, All Slots Filled
In response to the EF5 tornado that struck Joplin, Missouri last month, the Salvation Army Team Emergency Radio Network (SATERN) -- through the ARRL -- requested volunteers to help support their mission to supply logistical and communications support. More than 50 hams responded to the request, and as of Monday, June 6, all personnel needs have been met. Those amateurs who have already been assigned a slot should maintain contact with SATERN leaders, but no more new volunteers are needed. Both the ARRL and SATERN greatly appreciate the response from the amateur community.
