IPAWS Test 2

During BLACK SWAN 20 we engaged in an important test: movement of a Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) message through the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) using a radio-only path. We demonstrated the possibility. Now we're looking to develop capability to do so in a more timely fashion. See the bulletin below for details.

To get a greater understanding of IPAWS and how the system is used, please see IPAWS for Alert Originators (IS-0247.B) and IPAWS for Alerting Administrators (IS-251.A). If you're an Ohio ARES operator, remember to get your certificate and add it to the Ohio ARES training database.
