Emergency Services Deployment Exercise

Fulton County Amateur Radio Club Emergency Services Deployment Exercise
April 14, 2021

On April 14, 2021, at 8:00 P.M. the Fulton County Amateur Radio Club and the Emergency Services Net will be conducting a deployment exercise, in which we will attempt to cover the entire county. We are asking all hams to assist in this event if possible.

The purpose of this net is to test our repeaters, along with our individual equipment to make sure we are ready for an emergency, along with making sure we can cover the entire county. We will be doing this with not only mobile radios in our vehicles but will be working with HT’s as well. There will also be some exercises conducted on Simplex to simulate the repeaters being down.

Here is an outline of how this will work:
