Even though the 147.240 (+600 kHz – 123.0 Hz tone) repeater is having severe problems with receiving, we will hold the Volusia ARES net on the repeater tonight. Please use high power and (if you have one) a directional antenna pointed at the repeater site, which is near the Volusia County Emergency Operations Center, when you attempt to check into the net.
Stations that can hit the repeater should check into the net via RF. Stations that cannot hit the repeater should monitor the frequency and send Emergency Coordinator James Lea (email@example.com) an email letting us know that you participated in the net.
The Volusia ARES primary repeater has been repaired. It should be working as it was before the issue occurred. If you discover any new issues, please report them to the Emergency Coordinator. James WX4TV firstname.lastname@example.org
