EMCOMM, EMergency COMMunications.

In case of the repeater being off air, the emcomm protocol for 985 will be using 146.985 Mhz SIMPLEX.  It is suggested that you program a “memory channel” for 146.985 simplex, NO PL Tone, 0.000 Mhz offset (may have to change the auto repeater offset to 0.000 Mhz).  

We have done exercises on the repeater and on 75M and 10M.  We will be trying some other frequencies in the future, if there is enough interest.
