WVCARC Great Shake Out Drill Results

We had a successful drill Saturday.  We started at 10:00 AM and completed the drill at 11:20 AM.  We had operators check in from 39 schools and 6 fire stations.  12 operators did the check-ins and my daughter and I ran Net Control for a total of 14 operators.  We ran Net Control from the church at 4333 S 6400 W on solar and battery power.  Most operators were assigned 3 - 4 locations and the majority of the operators checked in via voice.  We did have two operators who checked in over packet Winlink which helped lighten the load on the repeater.  I think this was the best drill yet.  It is always good to set goals for the next time we do this.  I would like to have more operators able to check in by Winlink, as well as have more operators participate next year.

A special thanks for those operators who participated.  It sounded like everyone had an enjoyable time.  Let me know your thoughts on the drill.
