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 September 5, 2020*, then turned off again. It needs to be tested
on a monthly basis (1st Saturday) to ensure that it is operational.

Please check in on the Hawaii State VOAD repeater, 146.72- MHz (PL 100.0
Hz) Maunakea, Saturday, September 5, 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. If time permits, we will practice message handling
in preparation for the October 3, 2020 Simulated Emergency Test (SET).*

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., Big Island 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.

Stay Healthy. Stay Safe.

Thanks,
