UPCOMING EVENTS  - -
2022 Simulated Emergency Test (SET)
Test Your Readiness on October 1st & 2nd

ARRL's Simulated Emergency Test (SET) is October 1 - 2, 2022, and this nationwide exercise is the chance to test your personal emergency-operating skills and the readiness of your communications equipment and accessories in a simulated emergency-like deployment.

ARRL Field Organization Leaders at the section and local levels, and many other volunteers that are active in public service and emergency communications, are developing simulated emergency-like scenarios in consultation with a variety of agencies and organizations for whom radio amateurs are known to provide service during emergencies.

For more information on the SET, please read the Simulated Emergency Test Guidelines at www.arrl.org/public-service-field-services-forms
