Hello to all…..
EMa ARES will begin a limited mobilization starting next Sunday, July 25th. Many of the germane parts of the Operations Plan (OpPlan) appear in the left column under the heading “DNC OPERATIONS”.
This is the daily updates on our plans to assist participating agencies with the DNC, for Tuesday, July 20th. News items will appear in this column, while permanent material or changes will be posted in the left hand column under the heading “DNC OPERATIONS”.
Please note that the frequency plan for our mobilization will not appear on this website, but will be passed to players under separate cover.
Amateur Radio Operators outside the ARRL Eastern Massachusetts section should first contact their ARES Section Emergency Coordinator for permission to mobilize, as no “self mobilized” hams will be accepted, and will be turned away. Their response to you will depend on whether we have asked for assistance from outside our section, based on how much support we receive from inside the Eastern Massachusetts section.
And now the news…..
1. We held our combined RC/ARES communication drill last night. The drill was very successful, according to Deputy SEC, Rob, KD1CY. Other key players included N1CPE, WQ1O, N1VUX, N1FY, N1BDA, and W1ZSA. Our thanks to everyone who checked in and participated.
2. Bill, N1VUX, will be providing ducting reports in support of our limited mobilization (please see latest report above)
3. Players can expect the updated plan by the end of the week.
