If you’re interested in any Emergency Communications, especially in the case of storms or other disasters then there are some resources available and we will have more as time progresses. Maybe we will just keep updating this post with new information and maybe we will add a section to our links page. In the meantime, check out the information here: https://www.dhs.gov/safecom/field-operations-guides
Update: The time is the same for the picnic, but the date has changed. Saturday September 15th instead of the 16th.
Okay, so you already know that the repeater is back on the air. We have the CW ID broadcasting N2CNY every 8-10 minutes. We have some photos below and so far the repeater has been up for about two weeks and some change. We are still trying to finish up some minor upgrades and updates to it. As of this moment we will be doing some final, hopefully last changes to the equipment and antenna on the day of our club picnic, which is September 16th, 2018 at the repeater site location of Fenner Wind Farm. Directions are here. We are so glad to have everything in place and working. Please join us if you can. We are meeting at 12:00 pm (1200 hours) and all you need is to bring a dish to pass. You can contact JJ our club president with your dish information so we can coordinate that we don’t have all deserts or all baked beans. All are welcome if you can make it. We will be using the repeater (145.210 PL 71.9 -0.600) for call ins if you need assistance getting there. It’s going to be fun, in the mean time enjoy some photos and a video of our repeater/antenna.
This just in……right off our email…..directly from Peter W2BEW……so please read on….
