Ham radio operators will be sent to several police and fire departments throughout the county. A net control station will be activated at the Talladega County EMA. Radio communication will be through a VHF repeater on 146.74 MHz.
Radio contact will also be maintained with a statewide emergency net and the Alabama Emergency Management Agency in Clanton. We will also check into a digital radio net on 7.1 MHz using PSK 31.
This Simulated Emergency Test is part of a nationwide exercise that is held each year.
