Global Simulated Emergency Test (GlobalSET)

The date for this event, sponsored by IARU Region 1, has been
altered to coincide with World Amateur Radio Day on April 18th.
The theme for the day of "Amateur Radio: Your Resource in
Disaster and Emergency Communication" is an ideal opportunity
to showcase the work of emergency communications groups around
the world.

The timing of the event remains at 1100-1500 UTC but in a
change for this and future events, the focus will be on
generating and relaying messages in a common format across
country borders rather than the information gathering about
capabilities which has taken place in the past.

More information will be posted on www.iaru-r1.org and
www.raynet-hf.net as it becomes available.
