Simulated Emergency Test (SET) 2018
Amateur radio operators across the Hawaiian Islands are invited to participate in a
Simulated Emergency Test (SET) exercise on Saturday, October 13, 2018 from 9
Am to 12 Noon HST. The purpose of the simulation is to test radio operators’
capabilities and communications systems in the event of a disaster.
All radio amateurs throughout the State of Hawaii are encouraged to join in the
exercise simulation. This includes members of ACS, American Red Cross, ARES,
CERT, DEM RACES, Hawaii VOAD, SKYWARN, STATE RACES, The Salvation
Army, and unaffiliated radio operators.
The scenario will simulate the devastation sustained by Puerto Rico after Hurricane
Maria hit the island as a Category 5 storm, with severe impacts on power, water &
communication systems and overall infrastructure. There was disruption of the food
and fuel supply chains, pumping stations, ATM machines and cash availability, and
destruction of homes and businesses by wind and flooding.
The Hawaii simulation will be a major hurricane with sustained winds of 130 to 156
MPH (a category 4 on the Saffir-Simpson Scale) affecting all islands in the state.
The hurricane will have approached the state from the south and passed close to
the western coastline of all the islands as it headed north.
The specific objective for this communications exercise is to develop a Simulated
Incident Map (SIM) for all islands. Developing the SIM map will also support
objectives to assess the ability of radio amateurs in the state to respond quickly to
an event; to develop emergency communication skills; and to send clear, concise,
and comprehensive messages to emergency operations centers. The amateur
radio operators will be encouraged to use digital communications by sending long
messages using digital techniques (specifically WinLink).
This exercise will build off of the successful Grid Madness event in September
where amateur radio operators used their radios to talk as far as possible around
the island in a mode called Simplex. Amateur operators are encouraged to work
completely off of the electrical grid by using batteries, solar panels, or generators to
power their stations.
For more information about this event please contact Stacy Holbrook of the ARRL
Pacific Section at 808-224-0344 or kh6owl@arrl.net.”
