The Simulated Emergency Test 2019 has concluded. Thank you for your participation. Watch the Reports section of the COTN site for the after-action report.

SET Schedule

COTN will hold its numerous sessions starting on Saturday, October 5, 2019, and continuing through Sunday October 6. All times are local (Eastern). Each net will have a designated Net Control Station (NCS), liaisons to Ohio Single Sideband Net (OSSBN), Buckeye Net (BN), and W8SGT, and will take place on a designated frequency (always start with primary, then move to secondary, then tertiary, then simplex), with any particular focus for the session (for example, simplex operation), noted.

Note that the SET is part of BLACK SWAN 19, which runs October 2–8 and will conduct operations with both U.S. Government and amateur stations on Ch. 4 of the 60m allocation. Remember that all net control stations for sessions on October 5 and 6 will need to send their detailed SET session reports.
