13 member check-ins.
Gary, WA6TQJ successfully tested the radio station at Yolo EOC. Voice and packet worked fine. HF was having problems in that conditions were not good.
Lucille W6KJX encouraged all members to give being net control a try- IT IS NOT DIFFICULT.
NOTE: The repeater went down after a few check-ins.
Per SOPS net control switched to the KE6YUV out few on simplex, and was heard by a few members. Then the net moved to our backup repeater N6QDY.
Practice Message (or more traffic)
We cancelled the practice message due to repeater outage and discussed procedures when a repeater goes down.
Brad KM6RIW noted this was a goo test of what to do when Repater goes down.
Later Monday evening, Ken K6WLS and Joe AG6QO were able to remotely rest the repeater and all is fine now.
Closing time: 8:25:00 PM
