Sep 19 net is simplex!

posted Sep 12, 2010, 9:16 PM by Charles Boling
Next week's net will not be held on the 147.26 repeater, but will instead be held on a simplex frequency.
146.500 MHz (LV) is the designated frequency; if there is a problem with that one, we will drop down to
146.480 MHz (WD2).

This exercise is primarily to practice communications without the aid of a repeater -- which will likely be happening at some level during an emergency response, and to get an idea of what kind of simplex coverage we have among our members.  That, and just to do something different for fun!

In keeping with the 2nd reason, I am making this request of all net members:
Please keep a list of all call signs that you personally hear check in.  At some point after the net, send me a copy of that list, and I'll compile some stats to share with everyone.  This is potentially valuable for EmComm planning -- we want to know what resources we have that can reach where!  Thanks in advance for helping.
