I’ll take that for a YES.

I think I could manage that if I’m on campus. I don’t think it would be much use from Hallsville, otherwise.
No sense standing on the diving board unless I jump with both feet. Can’t learn to swim unless I get wet.
If you have the time free for Nov 6 in the morning, I sure hope you could join in the exercise. We are planning to include a portion of the exercise on the MU campus with all HTs,
so you have the equipment to fully participate. The SET is called a "no-fault" exercise, so you won't be under any pressure, just learn more about your radio and how to pass some messages to another station.
But if you do just want to listen to a directed emergency type net, tune to 146.610 MHz. (but don't interrupt :).

I’m in the same boat. I’m not a club member, but wanting to join. I’m not as comfortable jumping in yet as I have a hand held, although I can attach it to 2M antenna if I can
hang it somewhere high enough… I think I’d rather listen in and learn on this one. Just need to carve out time to put up a real antenna. /*facepalm*/

I am not a club member, considering joining once this COVID crap settles down and you met again, but I would like to participate. I have both mobile and HT.

The annual Simulated Emergency Test (SET) is coming up.There has been some great planning for this exercise in our county Office of Emergency Management group organized around Earthquake
response in Boone County. We are also involving some MU campus sites in the exercise.
We need some more amateur radio operators for this SET. Below is the list of the volunteers I have so far. (If you told me you wanted to participate, and don't see your call - I'm
sorry I missed it).
Please respond to this email if you can play Saturday morning, Nov 6.
All operators are welcome. We use VHF/UHF radios, and we will tell you what to do in response to our calls. There is a place for HTs in this exercise.
If you can't leave the house, but you could use your radio that morning, we could maybe use you as a relay station.
