2020 DFW Metroplex NTS Functional Exercise
November 7 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
The ARRL North Texas Section and the DFW Metroplex Traffic Net will hold an emergency communications exercise on Saturday November 7. This exercise will simulate a cellular network outage and a request from government officials for reports from amateur radio volunteers to help monitor the situation.
For this exercise, a simulated Emergency Operations Center will ask for cellular network connectivity reports from across the Metroplex to help gauge the scope of impact during a simulated cellular network service outage in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Exercise participants will provide this information using the ARRL National Traffic System (NTS), a network of amateur radio operators who move information during disasters and other emergencies. As information is reported via the NTS, an online dashboard will update in real time to demonstrate data collection and reporting capabilities.
