My apologies for the late notice but this information just came in over the last couple of days.
Long Island New York ARES/RACES has requested support on HF for stations to contact them during their ARES/RACES drill which will take place Saturday
August 13th from 10 AM-4 PM. After talking with their Emergency Coordinator, John Allocca, WB2LUA, ARES Emergency Coordinator/RACES Radio Officer for the
town of Huntington, NY, I told them for this drill, they could utilize 7245 KHz for 40 Meter comms. and they have designated 3993.5 for comms. later in
the day. Their request is for any ARES operators who are available tomorrow at 11 AM to check in with them on 7245 KHz. At that time, they will let everyone know when they will attempt to utilize 3993.5 Khz.
Details on their drill are at the following link:
If you are around Saturday Morning, please try to check into the drill and thanks to all for their continued support of ARES/RACES and SKYWARN.
