The WC0HC Emergency Repeater System will be in use by Hennepin County Emergency Management for Auxiliary Emergency Communications during the 10-day SB LII period, starting Jan. 26 and ending Feb. 5.
We will be conducting a directed and closed Command Net on WC0HC-UG (444.175) during hours that the Minneapolis EOC and the Hennepin EOC are staffed. We will be passing routine traffic and EOC accountability reports (EAR) to maintain constant contact between the facilities in the event that Primary Communications (ARMER, phones, email) fail. Other EOCs may also be checking in from time to time, depending on their activation status.
Please do not contact Net Control unless you are staffing an active EOC in the Metro, or unless you have emergency or priority traffic to pass. We need to keep the repeater open for possible emergency traffic among Metro EOCs. Stations violating this will be asked to leave, and further actions will be taken if offending stations do not comply.
The downtown Minneapolis repeater, 146.700 (WC0HC-VM) will remain open until such a time that it needs to be commandeered by Hennepin County Emergency Management. However, by Standard Operating Procedure this repeater is for emergency and training use only.
Thank you for your cooperation and your continued support of the WC0HC Repeater System.
We are suggesting that Auxiliary Emergency Communicators who wish to program the WC0HC repeaters into their radios use the suggested Alphanumeric Programming Names (see above). This will make interoperability easier.
P25 functionality is now disabled.
