Updated Info: Statewide SET October 3, 2009

Following is the essence of a message sent October 2, 2009 by Bernie Nobles WA4MOK NC SEC

Note that the Central Branch Office will be represented by a surrogate HF station (i.e. not operating at the actual CBO)

REMINDER

SET IS COMING YOUR WAY SATURDAY OCT 3RD

TARHEEL NET WILL ACTIVATE AT 0800 ON 3923

Alternate frequency 7232 + or – QRM if 75 meters drops out

If your county is active during the set, no need to send a formal message indicating that you are active,

just check in with net control that your county is active in the set. If there is formal traffic it needs to be in the ICS-213 format, also indicate that it is a Drill Message.

Reminder that all traffic from counties needs to be directed to your Branch Office and not State EOC.

The Eastern Branch Office will be active, others may have a surogate station operating as the branch office.

The scenario will be announced on the TarHeel net Friday night, but may be a surprise message Saturday morning.

We all want to make NC at the top of the list, but most important is to check your systems, to see the pro’s and con’s of your capabilities , so we can better serve our agencies, and the citizens of NC.

Be sure to send in your SET reports to the ARRL

Thanks to all for the hard work everyone does to accomplish the goals of NC ARES

Good Luck
