Winter Field Day
We had another successful Winter Field Day deployment on the last weekend in January, although the weather as more spring-like than winter-like. We set up two stations in a tent and a third station in the MAIPN Van. Operating over a 24-hour period, we made contacts in 34 states and four Canadian provinces. Click here for the full story.
Maryland/DC Hospital Drill
Ten MCACS members participated in the quarterly Maryland/DC hospital net on the evening of Jan. 2, operating from stations at three county hospitals. Winlink traffic was passed to and from all participating hospitals, and a voice net was conducted on the Central Maryland Repeater Group’s network of linked 70 cm repeaters. The next hospital drill will be on April 2.
