*2m Packet operators outside Union County may need to use a combination of the AL1Q-12, KK7MA-12 digipeaters for P2P connections.
 
The exercise will be coordinated locally through the 147.260 K7RPT repeater with simplex 146.520 as backup.

Those outside of Union County repeater coverage are encouraged to log in to the KK7MA chatserver for coordination at: unionares.org/chat

Tips:
  • Messages composed as ‘Peer-to-Peer Message’ type will not leave your outbox unless you connect directly P2P to the addressed operator.
  • Messages composed as ‘Winlink Message’ type will not leave your outbox unless you connect to a Winlink gateway (not P2P).
  • If a message is composed as an unintended type, you can simply open the message from your outbox and change the type.
