The SET Hotwash will be held on Monday, 5/3 at 7:00 PM using the IL ARES Zoom Room:
On Saturday, May 1, the Illinois ARES team will be doing a Simulated Emergency Test from 10 AM to 2 PM. The scenario is an earthquake in the southern part of the state. Simulated emergency messages will be passed locally, throughout the ARES districts and statewide to test message handling and net operation skills. Primary net operations and coordination will be on 3905 kHz. The Illinois Section ICS-205A can be reached through: https://ilares.org/ in the New Files In The Library Post.
An informal wellness net will begin at approximately 1 PM during the SET. All amateur operators are welcome to check in.
John Nebl, N9MYC, has created a list of current Illinois Amateur Radio Nets, including 2 meter, 70 cm, and HF frequencies. You can find it on the Nets drop-down menu.
The ARRL Illinois Section Daily Wellness Nets have concluded, and participation was exceptional. A total of 748 amateurs checked in at least once during the time the nets were operating, and 94 Illinois counties were represented in the logs.
A searchable table showing the callsigns of everyone who checked-in to the nets can be found on this page.
Congratulations and thank you to everyone who contributed to this project.
