We will start with TAC 14. The portable repeater with ECOMM 1 at the National Weather Service parking lot. If we use the ALT repeater TAC 15. It has back up power to the system. It has good coverage for Reno & Sparks Valley floor. The W7RHC-2 is good for Spanish Springs and some North Valleys. W7RHC-3 may work in the same area as the W7RHC-2. We may also test the Simplex. If all repeaters are down we will have to use TAC 38 Direct Comms
Note for ARES team and other team players
This is an exercise. This exercise is to help use your skills or to gain skills. We want people to use proper radio procedures and phonetics. If you need help, reach out for help. No one is a pro. This exercise is to have you succeed, have fun and learn what you can do to improve your equipment, or your knowledge.
Thank you to the following people for a early commitment to help with the set/exercise.
