I need some help with radio testing next Saturday, November 6, 2004, from 0900 – 1200 (approx.). We have been approached by a potential “served agency” that may require our EMCOMM services and we need to test several of their locations within the City of Boston to see if we can hit a variety of repeaters on the UHF and/or VHF bands.
To participate you will need a car, a portable radio and a better than stock antenna. (A mobile radio will be nice but not necessary.) I’m looking for Boston hams with a good sense of the City.
We are going to various locations in the City and testing from the curb in front of a building. We can’t have access to the buildings yet but we should be able to get a good sense of how a portable should hit repeaters in and around Boston.
If you’re available and would like to help please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll determine a convenient meeting place. I’ll then brief you on the potential agency and their mission.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
