Results
  • SCCo EOC T-card Rack (JPG)
  • Packet Notice with Detailed Instructions (TXT)
  • Recordings
    • Message Net (.MP3 - 50MB)
    • Alternate Message Net (.MP3 - 50MB)
      • RX audio at the County EOC: Audio from those calling the county on the UHF repeater was almost unintelligible. It sounded extremely overmodulated. It took several people listening to make out what was being said, and only after the caller had repeated it several times. On this recording, it is much more readable, but still nowhere as clear as audio from the VHF repeater. So we may have both a radio problem in the EOC and a repeater (or link) problem.
      • TX audio at the County EOC: Audio (modulation) from the county EOC operator is low. The radio does not have a mic gain setting.
    • Command Net (.MP3 - 50MB)
    • Note: Listening with a tool that shows the audio wave form (such as the free tool Audacity), will allow you to jump past quiet periods.
  • Scorecard / Dashboard (TBD)
  • After Action Report (TBD)
