The purpose of this test and others in this series of tests and experiments is to allow participants to learn about their ability to communicate with one another in a ‘repeater down’ or ‘electric grid down’ situation along with having fun as part of a community of Mid-Hudson Region amateur radio enthusiasts. The specific objective of the Friday, June 11, 2021, 9:30 am test is to learn about our group capability and individual participant ability to operate and cmmunicate on the 6-Meter band using voice transmissions. Registered operators will be transmitting on 52.540MHz FM Simplex during pre-assigned 2-minute time slots.
Listeners can follow along and report what is ‘Heard’ or ‘Not Heard’ during the pre-assigned time slots. If able, reports on clarity of signal and signal strength can also be included. A ‘Listeners Only’ section of the report will be created and posted in this Forum along with the results of the transmitting stations.
All are invited and welcome to participate. The call signs, names and location information of those who have pre-registered to transmit can be downloaded by clicking on the button below.
