Eyes and Ears

Our Annual Eyes and Ears operations at the Broadway Square Mall begin Friday, Nov 24. The schedule is here.

Thanks to all who have already signed up, but there are always opportunities for more. We’ll use the portable 441.350 repeater, positive offset, with 136.5 CTCSS tone, uplinked to 146.94. When you arrive at the Mall check in on your radio. If you need a temporary badge, or orange dots for your car if you’ll be driving, we’ll be in the mall offices. You can stop by.
