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 August 1, 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, August 1, 2020  1200-1300 HST.

*When checking in please give your callsign spelled phonetically. After the
check ins are taken, we will take power, antenna length and antenna
elevation above MSL.*

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.

Stay Healthy. Stay Safe.
