ARES RADIO ROOM AT RED CROSS OFFICE
Discussed plans for working on the radio room upstairs at the Red Cross office. Packet station and/or WinLink are being considered as additions. Greg (KG6SJT) will explore getting a call sign for Yolo ARES. Rick (N6KLB) offered to donate a laptop that can be used as a message server for the radio room.
