SB SPCL ARL ARLX007
ARLX007 Annual Armed Forces Day Crossband Test Postponed

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 response and mitigation actions, the
2020 Armed Forces Day (AFD) Crossband Test scheduled for Saturday,
May 9, has been postponed.

Because it's uncertain just when stay-at-home orders will be lifted
across the US, AFD planners chose to postpone this year's event,
because the government stations that typically support this event
may not be available.

Armed Forces Day Crossband Test planners are considering scheduling
a November event in honor of Veteran's Day, depending on COVID-19
mitigation actions.

During the AFD Crossband Test, military stations in various
locations transmit on selected military frequencies and announce the
specific ham frequencies they are monitoring to work radio amateurs.
