The Current REAL WORLD AmRRON Communications Network Condition Level is:
*14 JUNE 2018 UPDATE*
Due to the apparent success of the U.S./North Korea talks this week, the political and nuclear threat situation appears to have deescalated significantly. We are lowering the AmCON to Level 5, the lowest level. We will continue to be watchful. Thank you for your vigilance and always being ready to respond with emergency communications!
*15 APRIL 2018 UPDATE: *
//All Stations// Reduced readiness level to AmCON-4 Due to the limited scope of military action in Syria, and Russia's appeal to the United Nations in what appears to be a 'diplomatic' and propaganda response to the air strikes, it is our estimation that the situation has deescalated. It is also our assessment that as a result, there is a significantly reduced probability of a major or catastrophic disruption to conventional communications. There does still exist a significant build-up of military assets in the region around Syria and tensions remain high. The situation is still tense and volatile. We urge AmRRON members (and others) to keep backupand non-essential electronics equipment stored in faraday when not in use. Continue to train, improve your stations and your skillsets, and participate in the regularly-scheduled practice nets. Check the website for any further updates or guidance. We hope to have a solution to the mobile AmRRON app soon. Stay safe and alert. JJS, AmRRON
*13 APRIL 2018 UPDATE: *
//All Stations// Due to increased tensions and the maneuvering of military assets by multiple nations in and around Syria, we are raising the AmCON to Level 3. This increase in AmCON is to increase awareness of an increased probability of an event which could disrupt conventional communications. We will continue to monitor the situation. At this time, no immediate action is called for beyond the general guidance outlined for AmCON 3. More guidance will be forthcoming and will be posted on AmRRON.com. We will continue to evaluate and assess. The Staff, AmRRON
