ARLX001 Third Wednesday Monthly Communications Exercises Set

FEMA Region 10 will conduct monthly communications exercises
(COMMEX) on the third Wednesday of each month, starting on January
16, 1730 - 1900 UTC. Amateur Radio operators are invited to take
part. The intent of these exercises is to test and exercise
interoperable communication (federal/state/local/tribal/Amateur
Radio) during a major disaster in which the communication
infrastructure is significantly damaged or destroyed.

FEMA Region 10 will use the call sign WGY910. Other stations
associated with agencies and organizations that provide response
support in accordance with the National Response Framework are
encouraged to participate.

The COMMEX will use these "dial" or "window" frequencies on 60
meters - including 5,330.5 kHz, 5,346.5 kHz, 5,357.0 kHz, 5,371.5
kHz, and 5,403.5 kHz - as part of the exercise. The area of
operation is the continental US.
