I have a Part 90 certified HT with HAM/GMRS licenses so as long as I follow the bandwidth and power restrictions, I'm good to go for MURS, Dual Band & GMRS.

If you can reach NOVA or Winchester repeaters, let's do a comm check.

DCJon,

If you can reach NOVA or Winchester repeaters, let's do a comm check.

Is it possible from Williamsburg?

Rig is in truck, antenna is mounted.
75 watts of RF power

When would be a good time?
ARES net tonight at 19:30 hours

Just saw this---sorry about that. How about 1930 on Friday? Do you have a favorite repeater? Going south, I can hit the FBI repeaters.
