MARS Coronal Mass Ejection Disaster Exercise


I have a suspicion if I or any of us were to mention the something like this out loud, we would be featured on a reality TV show with experts commenting on how conspiracy theorist we were.

You do have a standby / backup radio in that large faraday cage with the combination lock door, correct? Also, imaging how well QRP would work if all of the fluorescent lights went dark.

A disastrous coronal mass ejection (CME) will be the focus of a national Military Auxiliary Radio System (MARS) communication exercise in early November, and MARS is hoping to collaborate with Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) and Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES) groups.
