DOD HF Communications Readiness Exercise

By W7YP - Posted on 14 October 2018

From 22-26 October 2018, MARS (Military Auxiliary Radio System) members will be supporting the DOD HF communications readiness exercise testing the ability to communicate via voice and military standard communications protocols simulating the loss of traditional forms of communication.

Throughout this exercise, MARS members will interface with the Amateur Radio community to collect information at the county level regarding publicly available information using voice and amateur radio digital protocols.

On 24 Oct 0001 Hrs Zulu (23 Oct 2001 Hrs Eastern; 6:01 PM Tuesday 23 October MDT) amateur radio operators are requested to monitor 60 meter channel 1 (5330.5 KHz, upper sideband) for updated information regarding this exercise and how the amateur radio community can participate. During the exercise, MARS members will communicate with amateur radio operators on all five 60 meter channels, as well as the other amateur radio bands.

There will be an informal FVARC/ARES net on Tuesday, October 23 at 8:30 PM MDT on the club repeater at 146.76 MHz for anyone who wishes to discuss the exercise.
