On Sunday November the 23rd those trained and prepared for disaster when it strikes will be on air for a special training exercise.

IARU Region 1 invites all IARU member societies and Emergency Communications Groups, to participate in its latest Global Simulated Emergency Test.

Emergency Centre-of-Activity frequencies on 80, 40, 20, 17 and 15 metres plus or minus QRM, will have registered stations calling CQ GlobalSET.

The event is to increase common interest in emergency communications, test how usable the frequencies are across ITU regions, prepare for international emergencies and the relaying of messages.

GlobalSET 2014 which runs from 11am to 3pm local time on November the 23rd, has its rules on the IARU Region 1 website, and includes registration with the relevant IARU regional coordinator.
