Sorry for the VERY late notice. We have some equipment issues at South Shore Hospital and thought it best if we did not use the equipment until we had a chance to thoroughly check out all the stuff we have on the roof and make any repairs necessary. We were going to cancel the Net but at the last minute, on short notice, Jeremy KB1REQ and the group at Mansfield EMA offered to step in and come to the rescue (once again).
Tomorrow at 10am Mansfield EMA will be Net Control for the August 5,2023 EMHN.
They will use the following Repeaters and NEDECN Network in the order listed.
1. Bridgewater 147.180 tone 67.0
2. Sharon 146.865 tone 103.5
3. Falmouth 147.375 tone 110.9
4. DMR -Talkgroup 8851 Time Slot :1 on the following NEDECN repeaters: Boston 449.175 -5.M CC:1, Hingham 146.430 -1.5M CC:1, Bourne 145.200 –0.6M CC:10, Dennis 146.470 -1.5M CC:11, East. Falmouth 145.210 -0.600 CC:9, Martha’s Vineyard145.180 -0.600 CC:10, and Walpole 145.380 -0.600 CC:12.
Return to Bridgewater for comments and Net closing.
NET Protocol: Please wait for Net Control to ask for Check-ins. When asked to check in please use the standard net check-in procedure which is: Here is.., un-key, wait 3 seconds to check for doubling, then give your or your facilities call sign, your first name, and your facility’s name.
We extend an invitation to any health care facility, EOC of any city or town as well as RACES or ARES members to check in during the NET.
We are always looking for groups or organizations to try their hand at Net Control duties. If you are interested in trying your hand at Net Control please let us know. We can be reached by sending an email to email@example.com or replying to this message. The goal is to rotate Net Control practice and the experience among as many individuals and groups as possible.
We thank the repeater trustees for their generosity in allowing us to conduct these monthly nets and the use of their systems in an actual event.
We hope to hear you Saturday.
