Frank O’Laughlin, WQ1O, writes on Facebook:
Cape Cod and Islands ARES district held its summer field exercise on Saturday August 7th. We had field sites in Falmouth, Sandwich, Brewster and Chatham with additional participation from home station in other parts of MA. We were on VHF, UHF, 6m, HF (60 and 75m) and digital Winlink/NBEMS. A MESHnet test was also performed. Our thanks to all of our net control stations on VHF/HF and Digital. It was good to have our SEC Rob Macedo, KD1CY, doing the 75m net. It sure was a hot and humid one today. Thanks to Sandwich EMA (Brian and Heather Gallant with Bill LaPine) for coming. Thanks to Barnstable County Emergency lead Chip Reilly for also coming down to see us. Special thanks to all of the operators who participated. Pics are from Sandwich. Other site pics will be posted soon.
