October is Simulated Emergency Test month. If your organization holds a SET, don’t forget to file the SET report with me and ARRL headquarters.
As the seasons begin to change, don’t forget to review your go kits for proper attire given the lower temperatures. Replace perishables and protect your gear from freezing temperatures.
