April 19, 2020 VARES Net Will Include SIMPLEX Drill

Tonight’s VARES weekly net will also include a SIMPLEX drill. Net control will be set up at the Volusia County EOC with a portable tower and will call the net as usual beginning at 19:00, EDT on the KV4EOC (147.240 +600 – PL Tone 123Hz) repeater. Once all stations are checked-in, we will move the net to 147.555 MHz simplex and see who can communicate with net control either directly or through a relay station. We will then move back to the repeater and then move to 446.000 MHz for a UHF simplex test.

Please make plans to participate in this net.
