Tonight's District nets at 1930 hours are using the 2-meter W6TRW repeater cross-linked with the 440 K6RH Rolling Hills repeater, our 2-meter TAC-3 simplex frequency, 220 simplex frequency (voice followed by an NBEMS message from Lomita Station), the 440 PV-West repeater, and concluding with another NBEMS message on 2-meter TAC-3 simplex. Please give an audio-quality and signal report on how well you hear the 440 PV-West repeater. All DCS members and members of the South Bay's city-affiliated disaster amateur radio groups are encouraged to check in and relay for other stations on simplex.

DCS Quarterly Training via Webex is this Saturday from 0830-1030 hours. Three subjects will be covered: 1) operating the DCS Countywide Monday Night Net; 2) Evaluating RF exposure when operating mobile or portable; and 3) ICS forms for DCS...familiar ones and some new ones. The Webex meeting link will be sent later this week.

We operate parts of our weekly District nets from the Lomita Sheriff Station on most Monday nights but still need volunteers to handle other portions from home stations. We have scripts that make net operation easier and the combined coverage from W6TRW 2m and K6RH 440 repeaters will enable many without good simplex coverage to handle our main net. Contact me at [email protected] with any Monday when you can help either from your home or from the Lomita Sheriff Station (at the latter working alongside S-60 or myself.)

Thank you to all who check in on the 440-PV West repeater. Your signal reports are very helpful as we gauge the new repeater's coverage. Further signal improvement is planned by replacing the current antenna with one having higher gain and adding a pre-amp on the repeater's receiver.
