COMEX October 30 - November 1
From 30 October through 1 November, members of the Military Auxiliary Radio
System (both branches) will be conducting a quarterly Department of Defense
Contingency Communications exercise. The purpose of this quarterly exercise
is train on our ability to provide communications following a “very
bad day” scenario when traditional forms of communications will likely
be unavailable. While the simultaneous loss of all communications nation-wide
is not likely, for training purposes, we are assuming there has been a massive
One of the objectives of this exercise is to continue the partnership with
the amateur radio community to help provide information about local conditions
and send this information to the Department of Defense to help understand
what is happening around the United States. During this exercise, we will
use 60 meters, local VHF and UHF repeaters as well as HF NVIS amateur radio
bands. Our goal is to have a conversation about the local conditions in and
around your county. During the conversation, our operators will be asking
basic questions such as the status of commercial power, public water systems,
and road conditions. These will be person to person conversations…you
don’t need to use any digital modes or know any special messaging formats.
To kick off this exercise, we are encouraging the amateur radio community
to monitor 5,330.5KHz from 0300-0400 Hrs Zulu on 31 October. During this hour,
we will be doing a high power voice broadcast from a military station on the
east coast and alternate with a voice broadcast from the west coast. Amateur
radio operators are encouraged to submit a reception report as indicated in
the voice broadcast.
For the remainder of the exercise, MARS personnel will be calling for amateur
radio operators on the 60 meter channels as well as using already established
amateur radio nets on HF NVIS and VHF/UHF repeaters. Amateur radio operators
are also invited to attend the ARRL webinar scheduled for 25 Oct at 2000 hrs
eastern time where Dave Stapchuk, Chief AF MARS, and the Army MARS Program
Manager will give a presentation about the MARS program. Please register for
the webinar at: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/regist…/4300481724544982273
