Members of the SATERN (Salvation Army Team Emergency Radio Network) team from the Central, Eastern and Southern Territories of The Salvation Army have arrived at "Hamvention," one of the two largest amateur radio conventions in the world, in Dayton, Ohio.

The SATERN trailer is equipped with satellite TV for situational awareness, satellite internet, Amateur radios for local and global communications. The command ready equipment allows for command and control anywhere The Salvation Army may serve.
