> The Delaware SET is this Saturday, October 17.  The event will begin at
> approximately 9:00 am and conclude prior to 12:00 noon.  All Amateurs
> are requested to participate in this once-a-year test, which gives us
> the opportunity to verify our equipment and our familiarity with
> operations in (simulated) emergency situations.  Moreover, it will help
> prepare us for emergencies by focusing on our capabilities, strengths,
> and weaknesses.
> The scenario for the test is a massive power outage caused by a
> cyber-attack on the power distribution control system.  The objectives
> for the SET are to maximize the number of Hams who check into their
> local nets and to verify our abilities to handle emergency-type message
> traffic.  
> ARES Emergency Coordinators (ECs) and RACES Radio Officers (ROs) in New
> Castle, Kent, and Sussex Counties have developed plans for the SET.  If
> you have not already received information about the SET, contact your
> EC or RO to find out how you can participate. 
> Another way you can get involved is to check into your local net at
> 9:00 on Saturday morning.  Please check into your county net and spend
> at least a few minutes taking part in this important exercise.   Here
> are the repeaters that will be initially used for the SET.
> Sussex County 147.090 (+) PL 156.7 (Millsboro)
> Kent County 146.970 (-) PL 77.0 (Dover)
> New Castle County 444.00 (+) PL 100.0 (Wilmington)
> Please participate in the SET.  The experience you gain during this
> exercise will help you become a more valuable member of Delaware’s
> Amateur Radio community. 
> As always, let me know if you have any questions.
