Exercise New Yorker

18 JULY. COTN operators have a chance to practice on-air message movement in coordination with a state agency on 7 and 8 August. Net control will be by voice, with digital message relay. Operations should be on HF, primarily on 60 meters, but may also include 75 meter phone and 80 meter digital.

Unless an unusually large amount of traffic to or from our area triggers an activation, interested operators may join the exercise by coordinating through the BLACK SWAN net.

Interested in showing others how to work in such operations? If you're opening up your field, agency, or home station, please let us know. Operators interested but lacking the HF gear or license to coordinate will benefit from your demonstration and experience.
