SET 2022 & Winlink


Bill McFarland - N0AXZ
 

Group,

Sorry for the cross postings (CMRA & BCARES), but some folks that may want to participate in the upcoming exercises are not in both of our groups, so to start this announcement I think I have to send to both groups. (34 of you will get this message twice :) Three things:

1. Check your calendars for the Simulated Emergency Test (SET) this year which will be held on November 12, 2022. OEM is already thinking about the scenario. Last year we had 22 radio operators. This included some new operators using their HTs around the MU campus. This was great. The SET is for all licensed hams, as we will primarily be using the VHF/UHF bands. November 12 is far off now, but if you intend to participate I would appreciate knowing as soon as tomorrow. You can always get off as the time gets near if you can't make it.

2. BCARES has purchased the Ashland UHF repeater, 444.175 MHz + PL=107.2. Get this programmed in your radios if not already, as we will be using it for much of the SET.

3. Winlink: email by radio.
Some of you have  been keeping up with how Winlink is continuing to grow into kind of a standard for digital traffic handling especially as it applies to EmComm situations. We had several Winlink users in last year's SET. I suspect that many of these haven't used your Winlink since then.  The Winlink Development Team has churned out many upgrades and form enhancements in the past year. So I feel the need to do a few Winlink exercises to get us ready for the SET. It will start with a presentation of the Winlink system at the next CMRA meeting. The exercises will start after that. Hope you are ready to get your Winlink Express going for the first time, or from the last time.
