2023 Ohio ARES NVIS Day 22 April 10AM-4PM ET

April 22 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

It’s coming! Ohio NVIS Day 2023 will be held Saturday April 22, from 10AM until 4PM EDT.

The purpose of NVIS day is to construct and try various antenna ideas, all working as NVIS (Near Vertical
Incident Skywave) antennas. These antennas are low to the ground and provide coverage generally
within a 400 mile radius- extremely important for regional HF communications in an emergency.

Take a big step forward and build upon the concept to answer the question, “How would we actually use
these antennas?”

For 2023, we have added a couple operating scenarios that will make your day more fun and be a
learning event for actual disaster communications. We propose a commercial power blackout, with the
need to communicate within your ARES district and to ‘The Sarge” at the Ohio EOC in Columbus.
