National Training Nets. The first National training net of the winter season was held on Wednesday night last the 18th of October. Conditions on the 80m band were good and communication was established successfully between all stations. Thanks to those who participated. Details of the next Net on the 15th November will be published in due course.

First EmCom party on the Air. IARU Region 1 has invited HQ-stations of its member societies and stations of special emergency communication groups including AREN to participate in the First EmCom party on the Air. This will be held on the 18th of November. The operation will happen on the IARU emergency centre-of-activity frequencies on 40, 20 and 15 meters (+/-QRM). During the first party the centre frequencies on 80 and 17 meters will not be used.

The objective of the party is to
1) increase the common interest among member societies in emergency communication,
2) test how usable these frequencies are cross the Region 1 and
3) create practices for international emergency communication between Region 1 member societies and special emergency communication groups.

There are also some special stations invited to participate like 4U1ITU, TP2CE and ITU conference station from Turkey.

This is not a contest but an emergency communication exercise! AREN will be participating. Again more details will be published soon.
