CLUB'S EMCOM SERVICES ...A HUGE SUCCESS
The club's participation as radio communicators on July 26th went extremely well. Special mentions go our Vice President Nick Powell, NF1P as the Communications Manager as well as the professionally performing quality Net Control operators, Greg Albrecht W2GMD, Corey Siegel, KJ6LDJ, as well as Eric Allen, AG6IE and Betsy Forsee, KK6JKF. Of course, a salute goes out to all operators who particpated especially those who provided communications for the SAG vehicles. Thanks also go to operators outside the club who provided communications services for this event.
A special courtesy goes to the Sutro Tower Amateur Radio Club for the use of the W6VSY UHF repeater as an alternate primary to the W6PW VHF system.
It was a lot of hard work by all and a job well done.
