  • 2017 INDIANA SECTION ARES SIMULATED EMERGENCY TEST -Saturday September 30, 2017 8 AM – 11 AM. Below is a message from Brent Walls, ARRL Indiana Section Manager about the ARES Simulated Emergency Test
  • “Thank you for your interest in participating in the upcoming SET.  The exercise was designed to allow participating from the entire Amateur Radio community. We will need relay stations on both local VHF/UHF simplex and possibly on the exercise session of the Indiana Traffic Net.  The timing for each is below.
    In the 9:00 hour, county ARES teams will be attempting to make contact with surrounding counties on simplex.  They should be using either 146.490 MHz or 446.100 MHz for the simplex contacts.  It would be a good idea to have some stations with decent antennas listening on these frequencies during that time.

    In the 10:00 hour, the exercise session of the ITN will fire up on or about 3.910 MHz to relay activation reports.  They could always use relay stations on that net to help relay messages from weak stations.”                      Regards,

  • The Shelbyville DMR repeater was struck by lightening and is not repairable. Repair Costs would exceed the value of the equipment. We have located and purchased a replacement repeater and should be back on the air in the very near future.
