As a reminder, for those ARES members in the southern counties that cannot reach the repeater, you can always check in via Echolink (it’s a free program for your computer and apps for Iphones and Android) on the 145.430 (-) 107.2 repeater via node WB4NWS-R / 593209. So please check in as we have a special time slot for all Echolink check ins.
