Each time, we will meet on our 442.950 MHz repeater for 10 min to do check ins then move to the Simplex Frequency. After moving to Simplex we will call on units in the order they checked in. We would like to test each unit starting with High power, then step down in power level, such as High, Medium, Low. If you can’t meet up at 8 pm, please feel free to join the simplex net when you can.
We will email forms to each club member to record how they received each unit using their meter on their radio.
