ALL VOLUNTEER disaster drill
There will be an ALL VOLUNTEER disaster drill in Sacramento on June 17, 2006. We are looking for as many operators as possible for this drill. No City, County, or State Agencies will be participating! We will be providing communications between each group as well as the ICS. We will need mobiles, stationary units, and handhelds as well as portable packet stations. This will be a great way to find out exactly how your equipment will work under disaster conditions. Please inform your operators and tell them to contact me at either my email address or by phone.

Thank You es 73,
Frank Reshke, N6SNO

Operation will be on all modes, though Lee will be operating PSK31 from his Communications Trailer. The trailer will be parked at 1425 Veterans Memorial Circle in Yuba City. Lee will prepare a Certificate confirming contacts upon request. The person requesting the Certificate will be asked to send a check for $1.00 made out to " The Yuba Sutter Amateur Radio Club c/o Lee Sheffield" and a self-addressed stamped 9x12 envelope to:

I will also be in the trailer with Lee, KC6MCI working PSK31 (Lees as CO) and doing VHF coordination with other stations that dont have PSK31 capability and/or to get participating stations coordinated on HF frequencies well be sending on for the PSK31 operations. Hope some of you guys and those that visit the website decide to participate. Its a worthy cause to support our EMS folks.
