The first European Emergency Communications Exercise held on September 27, was attended by hams from: Croatia, France, Germany, Italy, Macedonia, Portugal, Romania, Spain, UK, ... Pretty good for the first time.
Some of them participated only as listeners (SWL), others giving reports and a few sending and receiving messages.
On September 27, 2014, 9:00-11:00 CEST (07:00-09:00 UTC), the first exercise of this kind at European level will be held.
This was one of the projects discussed by EURAO members at Friedrichshafen, and it will be carried out with the support of associations in several countries.
Some of the EECE challenges are: to establish a human communications network of two levels: one national and another one international, to define operating procedures, to test its reliability, the operators skills and deployment time.
The European Radio Amateurs' Organization announces a new party on the air, this time with the motto: "give youth a chance". Remember this is not a contest, it is just a radio meeting with a few simple 'rules', better to call them recommendations.
