Possible RAYNET activity

Global Simulated Emergency Test (GlobalSET)
This amateur radio emergency communications exercise is held twice a year, the next GlobalSET is on Saturday the 13th of November.

The main change this time is that it will run 1100 to 1500 hours local time, of the stations taking part.

The operation will take place on and near the emergency Centre-of-Activity (CoA) frequencies on 80, 40, 20, 17 and 15 metres.

The objectives of GlobalSET are to:
Increase the common interest in emergency communications.
Test how usable the emergency Centre-of-Activity frequencies are across the three ITU regions.
Create practices for international emergency communication and Practice the relaying of messages using all modes.

IARU member radio societies, and emergency communications group stations intending to participate are requested to register through their IARU Regional or National Emergency Communications Coordinators.
