The Salvation Army has started to use our repeater on Monday evenings at 7 PM for their weekly net. The name of the net is SATERN. It stands for Salvation Army Team Emergency Radio Network. This net lasts about 15 minutes. You do not have to be a member of the Salvation Army to check in. Satern also has an International net Monday through Saturday starting at 10 AM on 14.265 Mhz. Every Tuesday there is a Territory net at 8:30 AM on 7.265 Mhz.
A little info about the Salvation Army Emergency Radio Network. During the initial first hours of a major disaster the Satern operators establish emergency communications for the Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster service. The Satern members also provide communities with invaluable Health & Welfare Inquiry services.
The attached brochure was available at the Hamfest in Saint Charles explaining in detail Satern.
