“1a. Reminder: monthly test and Sim. Severe WX Reports on Maunakea 146.72 MHz- (PL100.0) repeater, WH6FIU, set for Saturday, 10/5/19 1200 HST.

To: PacSecARES, HiCoARES, Big Island, KHRC, MKSS, OMKM, DECs, others,

We continue to need to ensure the MK repeater is operational. Operators on
the Big Island, Maui and Oahu are encouraged to involve member agencies in
this test. Coverage does extend to east facing coastlines of Maui and Oahu
and other areas with the greatest coverage on the Big Island.

*This month during the test, we will continue the spirit of the Simulated
Emergency Test (SET) by accepting voice reports of simulated Severe Weather
Reports after initial check ins.  If an actual event occurs, you may report
it as a Real-World Severe Weather Report.*

The repeater will be turned back on at noon for the test on Saturday
10/5/19, 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, October 5, 2019,  1200 HST.

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.,(BI) 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.

Thanks,
