High Frequency Radio Nets
SATERN (Salvation Army Team Emergency Radio Network) provides emrgency communications support to the Salvation Army wherever needed on site, at the local level, via VHF/UHF Nets. During wide-spread emergencies (hurricanes, earthquakes, forest fires, etc.), the 14265 kHz Net becomes emergency traffic and H&W Net providing tactical assistance to those on site and handling outgoing H&W messages. The 14265 kHz Net is generally on the air from 1200Z to approximately 0100Z during times of wide-spread emergency. Check this web site home page to determine the alert status of the SATERN Net. Delta Status is explained here.
See the table below for a list of International Nets
Check the top of any web site page to determine the alert status of the International SATERN SSB Net. Delta Status is explained here.
Each Salvation Army Territory has one or more Territorial SATERN Nets (see below). See a list of SATERN Territorial Nets here.
Many Divisions within those Territories have Divisional SATERN Nets. See a list of Divisional SATERN Nets here.
Locally or on-scene, SATERN uses either their own or other (ARES, etc.) VHF/UHF nets to provide communications support to the local Salvation Army IMAT (Incident Management Assistance Team). See a list of Local HF Nets used by SATERN here. And a list of local VHF nets here*

We will provide a list of services provided by SATERN nets on this page.
