According to The National Association for Amateur Radio (ARRL) elements of the US Department of Defense (DOD) will simulate a  ‚Äúcommunications interoperability‚ÄĚ training exercise across the United States on November 04-06. The announcement released on October 24 has not been widely distributed to the media, because the drill is simulating a total grid collapse and could spark public fear.

Well that doesn't make a lot of sense.  Schedule a black out drill on the very same day that Thugs R Us is planning massive riots across the USA.  I think Trump has a little more swamp draining to do yet.

I did not read all details, but if we are simulating an EMP event, prolly no modern radios will work. Guess it really will be a blackout!

On the positive side, if Ron does not get those antennas in his head removed before the event, he might get a real charge out of it!
