Is your "Go Kit" organized and ready to go?
April 4 ARES net topic was the readiness of your "Go Kit." Each check-in talked about elements important to them: Kit in the vehicle already; tote with battery, cables, and antenna; sleeping bag, sustenance and water; water proof boxes with your radio and power supply; Check List for packing; portable antenna, mast, and base support; personal items; VHF/UHF radio preferred over HF for an ARES deployment. The discussion was interesting and thorough and enjoyable. (Next Net: April 15th, 7 PM.) KA0HYR
