Utility Planet is the official blog for the column of the same name in The Spectrum Monitor. It replaces Utility World in the discontinued Monitoring Times magazine. Utilities are all VLF/LF/MF/HF (and sometimes low-band VHF) radio communications except broadcasting, CB, and non-emergency amateur. If you understood the last sentence, you know enough to read this blog.

NECN Quarterly Exercise in Progress
10493.0 kHz is active with the quarterly National Emergency Coordination Net drill. A FEMA station with callsign WGY ??? is working Army MARS at 1854 in USB.
It's worth checking out the alternate primary frequency on 5211.0, or maybe 13956 and 14567, USB and LSB.
