How is your "power in the field?"
The March 15 Washington County ARES Net on the 147.180 repeater dealt with the topic," What do you have for field power?" Each check-in was asked to report the types of "off the grid" power that they had available to them. Most reported that they had batteries and a vehicle as alternate power. Some also reported generators for their batteries or for their home. This is a good topic to keep in mind. Thanks to AB0XE, Steve, for helping us assess our capabilities.
