A National voluntary rescue service (Vapepa) exercise is being held in Finland this weekend ( 25-27 Aug ) , with the most activity taking place on Saturday. Radio amateurs will serve in local/regional exercises providing VHF Emergency communications on 6m, 2m, DMR etc. Digimodes are however preferred.
Their Radio Amateurs will also provide a Nationwide HF network on 60m and 80m using the Winlink system. That activity is focusing on four local Winlink access points between 3580 – 3605 kHz.
In total the exercise will have an estimated 1000 participants with 100 Radio Amateurs assisting.
If you hear traffic from this exercise, please allow a clear frequency so that Amateur Radio can be presented in the best possible way.
