The Georgia Section Statewide HF ARES Nets will be active during the annual Simulated Emergency Test scheduled for October 1, 2011.
The Statewide Nets will be active in support of Emergency Coordinators and various user agencies for the purpose of forwarding messages over longer distances than can be handled on local VHF and UHF nets, and to give increased exposure to ARES throughout the state and to encourage ARES membership and activity through a high level of visibility..
The following schedule will be in effect:
9:00 A.M. Statewide ARES Net 3975 KHz LSB
9:30 A.M. Statewide Digital Net (PSK31) 3583 KHz USB

Different Net Control Stations will be used for each net session.
The Georgia State (GSN) Net will be called on slow speed for the purpose of this special net.
All stations should review FCC rules regarding operations on the 60 meter band before transmitting on the ARES Net at 11:30 P.M. (Max. 50 Watts output, dipole antenna, and no tuning up of carriers, etc.)
Georgia scored high score nationally during last years S.E.T. Let’s do it again!

Best wishes to all, and let’s have fun on the 2011 Annual Simulated Emergency Test.
