From: RAC Headquarters - Pierre Mainville, VA3PM Date: August 23, 1999 Subject: Annual Simulated Emergency Test (SET) The RAC Field Organization is inviting all Radio Amateurs to participate in a Simulated Emergency Test (SET). We feel it is very important to demonstrate the cohesion between Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES) groups and National Traffic System (NTS), as well as to demonstrate to served agencies and the public what services can be provided under simulated emergency conditions. The main weekend for the 1999 SET is Oct 2-3, but ARES teams or nets may conduct their exercises anytime between September 1 and November 30. Consult with your Section Emergency Coordinator before settling on a date as a SET works best if there is active participation in a number of areas throughout a Section, and involving more than one local net, if possible. Whether you are part of a new or experienced ARES group, the SET is a great opportunity to learn or practice useful skills in traffic handling, net operation and emergency communication management.
