MARS Exercise 15-1

Quarterly Exercise Concludes!

MARS operators from all three Services joined ranks to conduct a contingency HF communications exercise to train and demonstrate proficiency on sending encoded messages across the US during a simulated wide-spread communications outage. During this exercise MARS stations reached out to local amateur radio stations via radio only means in order to continue building the working relationship between these communities.

Thanks to everyone who trained in today’s exercise! Your ability to react to a changing environment is a testament to your skill as HF operators. Keep up the good work!
