SET 2020 Results Released

December 20, 2020. Central Ohio Traffic Net (COTN) today releases the results of its annual Simulated Emergency Test (SET). In the Simulated Emergency Test, radio operators provided communication circuits to ensure highly resilient communication when usual telecommunications infrastructure was unavailable or unreliable.

Over a period of 48 hours, 33 stations (15 of which operated on non-grid power) moved a total of 110 messages. Actual time in operation during this period was 17 hours and 31 minutes

The operation was led for COTN by Chris Daniels KV8Z.

We reported results to the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) through its "Form B," and released the After-Action Report (AAR), both of which are available on the Reports section of the COTN web site at
