BREAKING NEWS ALERT: NET CONTROL & RELAY STATIONS NEEDED ON 14.265 MHz
ON MONDAY, 21 AUGUST 2017 – 1400 Z to 2200 Z
Any SATERN operator who can help should contact Net Manager Ken Gilliland (AG6SV) at AG6SV(at)ATT(dot)net.
SATERN is activating the International SATERN SSB Net on 14.265 MHz at a DELTA II status from 1400 Z to 2200 Z on Monday, 21 August 2017. This is to support the American Red Cross and the ARRL which are activating numerous local units of both organizations in the path of eclipse totality nationwide. The concern is that the millions of people – estimated to be about 7.5 million – flowing into the narrow path of totality across the United States may result in an overload and disruption of the normal communications infrastructure. If this occurs, ARES will support the American Red Cross with communications locally and use the International SATERN SSB Net as a national communications path for long–range communications to American Red Cross regional and national headquarters.
