There will be a DOD MARS CommEx 2022-2 Exercise from May 3 through 7 on 60 meters. For relay information within your county they stress all comms must be radio. No internet/phone/IRLP or echolink. Winlink is NOT part of the exercise, they want voice on 60 meters, channel 1 Upper Side Band. All reports must be real time road conditions, weather, no "exercise input disaster" stuff.
You will get an assignment for information at 0200Z and answer at 1200 local time.
Full explanation of the Exercise is in the youtube video link below. It is 47 minutes long and a very good description of the objective and necessary information. Also in the video is the amount of reliance the DOD MARS and FEMA has on amateur radio.
I took three snips of the slides (attached) for key information but highly recommend you watch the video. (only one is below-Admin)
Also listen to WWV at either 10 or 50 minutes after the hour for updated information.
For airport weather info listen to ATIS (Automatic Terminal Information Service) or AWOS (Surface Weather Observation Station) MARS may ask for the alpha designation used for the report (information Alpha, Baker etc)
Green Bay ATIS 124.1 Appleton ATIS 127.15, Clintonville AWOS120.675, Oshkosh ATIS 125.9, Waupaca AWOS 118.625, Fond du Lac AWOS 134.0. Smaller private airports will refer to the closest airport with active ATIS or AWOS systems for weather.
Any questions feel free respond.
73's and enjoy the learning experience!

Michigan AUXCOMM Spring Exercise
April 29th ? 31st
Email over Radio!
The purpose of this statewide communications exercise is to demonstrate the ability of Amateur Radio to provide accurate and timely messaging using forms through email over the radio or Telnet (Winlink) to further the mission of AUXCOMM in Michigan with their goal to support local County Emergency Management.
The objectives of this exercise are to:
1) Introduce new Operators to Winlink.
2) Introduce Operators to Winlink forms
3) Validate which counties can operate with Winlink, in support of Emergency Management.
4) Send requested information accurately and concisely.
5) Use plain language in the exercise
The goal is to have a team from each county assigned by the county Emergency Coordinator to gather information from individual Amateur Radio Operators around their county via radio or telnet. The County Emergency Coordinator sends a report of specific information as requested by the State AUXCOMM Coordinator KE8DON using an ICS 213 form and Winlink by telnet or radio to the State EOC. A three-day window is allocated to provide local teams with plenty of opportunities to participate.
To learn more about this program and how it may be helpful to you and your emergency management program contact your local Emergency Coordinator for Amateur Radio or contact Max Schneider, Michigan Section SEC, KE8DON@WINLINK.ORG.
