ARES  Repeater Test,  Tuesday, April 26, 2011, 1900 Local Time

Do not go to ARL.  No one will be there.
Meet on the 146.94 repeater for resource net at 1900 local time. Inform net control of your location and if you can deploy to another nearby location. You may operate mobile or from a fixed location.  After check in, you will be moved to another repeater for the tactical net.

If deployed to a location, notify tactical net control when you have arrived. Net control will ask you to test several repeater frequencies at both full power and at 5 watts (typical hand held power level).  Use a hand held for the low power if you have one.  An operator will answer you on that frequency – if you can be heard. We will use the following repeaters from multiple locations at several power levels.

The 6m frequency is correct. If 6m is open, everyone will be on 50.125. We will use 50.120

We will terminate about 20:30 local time.  Those in North Austin may join us at the DQ on North Burnet Road (just north of Steck Ave)
