GLOBALSET 2 METER NET (2015)

The Global Simulated Emergency Test ( GlobalSET ) started on 18th December with a 24-48 hour timelimit for Emergency Communications Groups around the world to carry out an availability exercise, contacting their members to find out how many would be available within 1-12 hours.

Malaysia took part in the Test while initial results have proved that amateur radio can respond quickly to an emergency call, even one on a working day, there has also been a great deal to learn about the reliability of the systems we use and the resilience of our structures.

An email has been sent to all societies in Malaysia to participate in this exercise.
