The repeater will be turned back on for the one hour test on Saturday, then turned off again. It needs to be tested on a monthly basis (1st Saturday) to continue to map out coverage and discover what minimal conditions are required to maintain communications on the repeater and to insure that it is operational.

Please check in on the Hawaii State VOAD repeater, 146.72 MHz (PL 100.0 Hz) Maunakea on this coming Saturday, November 3, 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 <>) and their partners (e.g., HI-EMA, HCCDA, MEMA, etc.)

Please give this notice the widest dissemination.
