North Shore ARES Stands Down from Danvers Incident at 1800

Hello to all….

North Shore ARES stands down their informal ARES Net on the 145.47 Danvers NSRA Repeater at 1800 local time. No requests for assistance have been received at this time and it appears any need for Amateur Radio assistance has passed.

North Shore ARES Emergency Coordinator, Jim Palmer-KB1KQW and North Shore ARES District Emergency Coordinator, Eric Horwitz-KA1NCF, will monitor any further developments and react to any changes as required. Jim-KB1KQW reported that more than 40 Amateurs checked in on the Danvers Repeater throughout the informal net that started at 3 AM Wednesday Morning.

Special thanks to Eric, Jim, North Shore ARES and the North Shore Radio Association for their efforts today. While no deployments were required, the high level of readiness and monitoring displayed was tremendous. Happy Thanksgiving to all!!

Respectfully Submitted,
