SPECIAL FLORIDA TRI-SECTION ARES NET SCHEDULED FOR 8/31/19
Tomorrow morning, Saturday August 31, 2019, at 0730 or immediately following the Florida Phone Traffic Net, there will be conducted a special Florida Tri-Section ARES Net. The purpose of this special Florida Tri-Section ARES Net is to allow those EOC’s with HF antennas to test their HF antenna installations. The net control will be Randy Payne K4EZM, an Assistant Section Emergency Coordinator for the ARRL West Central Florida Section and EC for Highlands County. Per the discussion on the Florida Tri-Section ARES conference call yesterday, it was decided to expand the net from a Section ARES Net to encompass all three Florida ARRL Sections. The net is specifically for Section level officials, elected or appointed, and ECs, but other amateurs are invited to participate. Format of the net will be taking check ins by sections. The primary point is to see if we are able to communicate all across the state. It will also be an opportunity for SECs to share any information that they may have for the group.
