The RRI First Quarter, 2018 EMCOMM Exercise is now in the record books. Despite very poor band conditions, we received traffic from throughout the Continental United States. We even received traffic from a REACT unit in Trinidad! The exercise provided a realistic test of field expedient stations under less than ideal RF propagation conditions. Here are a couple of photos, one of which shows Lane, WK4WC transmitting a message for the Stanly County ARES group in Abermarle, NC and two others, which show the ocean-side location of Rick Stutsman, N6IET as well as his antenna arrangement. Put May 12 on your calendar for our next exercise.
