More than one million people across nine states will participate in the 2012 Great Central U.S. ShakeOut!
During this drill “Drop, Cover and Hold On” - Drop to the ground, take Cover under a table or desk, and Hold On to it as if a major earthquake were happening (stay down for at least 60 seconds). Practice now so you will immediately protect yourself during earthquakes
Then, get up, dust off and ALL radio amateurs in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennesse, Mississippi & Alabama are requested to check in to the HF net on 7260 kHz and participate with ARES.
Following the KISS principal this net will be a CHECK IN ONLY net only. Check in with your call sign and location.  No traffic will be handled by this net.  The net will open at 10:15 a.m.* CST on 7260 kHz and run no more than one hour.

Good Luck,
