American Red Cross EmComm Drill – November 14, 2020
—————————————————

This drill is an exercise in sending messages from local sites to a group of
Divisional Clearinghouses to simulate and demonstrate the capability of amateur
radio operators across the country to relay information in times of need.

The drill will use the messaging program Winlink as the primary method
of delivering preformatted messages. Amateur radio operators will be free
to utilize any connection mode available – HF, VHF, UHF and Telnet.

The goal is to encourage more operators to become familiar with Winlink and
the message templates within. * *First message (to be transmitted from 9am to 10am HST)*
