Hurricane season has begun in the Central Pacific.
We continue to need to ensure the MK repeater is operational.
The repeater will be turned back on at noon for the one hour test, Saturday June 6, 2020, then turned off again. It needs to be tested on a monthly basis (1st Saturday) to insure that it is operational.
Please check in on the Hawaii State VOAD repeater, 146.72–
MHz (PL 100.0 Hz) Maunakea, Saturday, June 6
When checking in please give your callsign spelled phonetically.
If time allows, the NCS may take SIMULATED Severe Weather Reports. Please see previous emails sent out about the Hurricane Season and the Skywarn HAM effort. We have 3,600 seconds to practice on the repeater. Please make each second count. After Saturday, the next time it is turned on may be for real.
Get Ready Today. Be Ready Tomorrow.
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., Hawaii Island
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.
