Just a reminder of today’s VOAD repeater test:
PacSecARES, HiCoARES, BIARC, KHRC, others,
The Maunakea repeater continues to be in operation. No or very little traffic is noted on the repeater as there appears to be no communications emergency. Nevertheless, the repeater needs to be tested on a monthly basis to continue to map out coverage and discover what minimal conditions are required to maintain communications on the repeater; especially since we have entered hurricane season in the Central Pacific.
Please check in on the Hawaii State VOAD repeater, 146.72 MHz (PL 100.0 Hz) Maunakea on Saturday, June 2, 2018, 1200-1300 HST.
Please help us map the extent of coverage of the Maunakea repeater by checking in on the HSVOAD net from as many locations as possible.
This is an emcomm repeater, so please use best practices as given by the NCS when operating on the repeater.
This repeater serves the member agencies (e.g., East Hawaii VOAD, American Red Cross, The Salvation Army, Hawaii Pacific Baptist Convention, Team Rubicon, ARES and more <https://hivoad.communityos.org/cms/membership>) and their partners (e.g., HI-EMA, HCCDA, MEMA, etc.)
Please give this notice the widest dissemination.
