South County Subunit of CARES 6M & 10M FM mode Connectivity Exercise

The South County Subunit of CARES invites everybody to join in for a 6M & 10M FM mode Connectivity Exercise on November 18 from 0900 to 1100. The purpose of this exercise is to encourage SOCO and CARES members to begin using these bands for local voice communications. Those wishing to be involved will be asked to begin by checking into our Engineering NET on the AH6LE Repeater at 0900. We will then move to 6 meters for both simplex and repeater operations. Next, we will give people time to change antennas and move to 10 meters where we will again attempt both simplex and repeater operations.

Signal reports will be given using the Circuit Merit system.
