Annual Simulated Emergency Test

On Saturday, October 6, 2018, local Amateur Radio operators in Hollister participated in a Simulated Emergency Training (SET).  Sixteen participants checked into a radio frequency and stated their readiness to help if needed.

When we have an emergency, Amateur Radio Operators, sometimes called Hams, use their radio skills to help individuals and agencies (e.g. American Red Cross) with communications
