army mars customLogo.gifNormally, I’d wait to give this announcement until Tech Net…but by then, the event will be over. If you’d like to participate in a unique exercise that promotes both amateur radio and national defense readiness, there’s an event for you!

From the Army Mars website:

The Army Military Auxiliary Radio System (MARS) will host this year’s Armed Forces Day (AFD) Crossband Test on Saturday May 11, 2019. This annual event is open to all licensed amateur radio operators. For more than 50 years, military and amateur stations have taken part in this event, which is only an exercise scenario, designed to include hobbyist and government radio operators alike.
