Winter Storm Vigilance Continues

Please stay alert for unstable air masses in your area. Please review your
Severe Weather Report criteria and procedures.

*The repeater will be turned back on at noon for the one hour test,
Saturday, May 1, 2021*, 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, WH6FIU, 146.72- MHz (PL
100.0 Hz) Maunakea, Saturday, May 1, 2021  1200-1300 HST.

*When checking in please give your callsign spelled phonetically. After the
check ins are taken, we will take callsign, name, location, power, antenna
model number and antenna elevation above MSL. If time permits, we will
practice message handling. Please make note of the transmission quality of
the stations to handle traffic and let me know at the end those stations
that would not have a good enough signal to adequately pass traffic.*

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. *This is a directed net. All transmissions must be directed to the
Net Control Station (NCS) unless given specific permission to go direct
with another station.  When the conversation is finished, make sure you
announce to the NCS “back to net control, followed by your callsign (e.g.,
“back to net control, NH7PO.). *
3. No small talk. No sidetalk (unless following Directive #2 above.)
4. Stick to the EEI (Essential Elements of Information).
5. 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.” )
6. 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 FCC timer counting down.
7. 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) and their partners (e.g., HI-EMA, HCCDA, MEMA, etc.)

Please give this notice the widest dissemination.
Stay Healthy. Stay Safe.

Thanks,
