Simplex Exercises give NET amateur radio operators an opportunity to practice communicating without the use of a repeater. Some exercises focus on basic skills while others are dress rehearsals for citywide disaster exercises. We held a Simplex Exercise recently during the evening of Thursday, September 5, 2019 and plan to hold another one on October 6th in preparation for the Citywide Deployment Exercise on the evening of October 17th. If you would like to make sure you receive email about the next exercise, drop a note to firstname.lastname@example.org. Information about the Citywide Deployment Exercise can be found on the Deployment Exercise page.
