We continue to need to ensure the MK repeater is operational.
Hurricane season contiues to November 30, but hurricanes can occur
anytime.
Winter storms will be possible soon enough.  Please stay alert for unstable
air masses in your area.

*The repeater will be turned back on at noon for the one hour test,
Saturday, October, 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, October 3, 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.
Paauilo CERT will have a short drill.*

This is an emcomm repeater, so please use best practices as given by the
NCS when operating on the repeater.

1. Follow the directions of the NCS.
2. No small talk.
3. Stick to the EEI (Essential Elements of Information).
4. Reports should be structured with the most important part first and
not necessarily in chronological order. (“If it were a joke, the punchline
comes first.” )
5. End your transmission with your call sign (as much as possible.) This
is not an FCC requirement, but a net request. Reason: You never know when
the NCS is going to jump to another station and leave you hanging with a
10-minute timer counting down.
6. If you are asked to report in a particular format, please comply to
help speed up the process.

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,

Kevin, AH6QO
