SET: Simulated Emergency Test

NALCO held a small exercise for the American Radio Relay League Simulated Emergency Test on 6 October 2012. The intention was to deploy operators to Berkeley, Albany and Herrick radio operating positions. The goals were to check equipment operation, practice activation procedures and handle simulated stakeholder message traffic. The SET was announced at 1000 hours PST on 440.9 MHz. Operating positions at Berkeley, Albany and Herrick were manned at 1100. Simulated traffic was handled between 1100 and 1141 hours.
