” YOUR HELP IS NEEDED, August 15th, in a national exercise of the Military Auxiliary Radio System (MARS). Army and Air Force MARS operators will come to selected amateur radio VHF frequencies to check whether the utilities are working your county.
This request for your participation comes from MARS Region 7, which includes Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. However, this is a national exercise and all regions will be active. Emergencies do not recognize borders, so if you hear a call within your VHF network or HF, please assist.
During daytime of August 15th, MARS operators using their Amateur Radio call signs will make hourly calls on VHF & HF frequencies including 60 meters.
All hams are welcome to participate. If you would like to assist, let us know what county, frequency and time would work best for you. We will send out your information to members in your area for VHF contacts. Email your information to email address below.
MARS operators are hams who maintain a high-tech back-up radio communications network for the United States. For more information, or to join MARS, contact the included email address.
