MARS-Amateur Radio Interoperability Exercise to Test “Very Bad Day” Scenario
Greetings All: With the ending of this years AmRRON T-Rex 17 exercise, MARS will be conducting their own exercise beginning the 31st of October and ending on the 1st of November. This would be a good exercise for any Prepper Ham, here we can learn what to expect in a real event or as much as one can when dealing with the government. Remember; if they think you’re for them, then they want be thinking you’re against them. This may give you and me the advantage of a little time if something should go down, and if you are participating, you will know what’s headed yours or my way. The following is some information to help should you decide to participate. The more knowledge we have about them and the less they have about us is a win/win situation.
Contact MARS with questions about this exercise.
During an October 25 webinar, English will discuss the quarterly DOD contingency communication exercises, which promote interoperability between the Amateur Radio community and the DOD. He also will talk about initiatives for promoting the use of 60 meters between Amateur Radio and the federal government as well as the types of information MARS operators will be requesting from the Amateur Radio community during October 31-November 1 exercise.
Registration for the webinar, “Overview of Army and Air Force MARS,” remains open. Also during the webinar, US Air Force MARS Chief Dave Stapchuk, KD9DXM, will discuss the history of the Military Auxiliary Radio System (MARS) program and membership requirements for Amateur Radio operators. Webinar registrants will receive a confirming e-mail that contains information about joining the webinar.
