Served Agency Station Testing Today

I took the opportunity today while I was out and about to stop in and test the HAM Stations that we have at a couple of our served agencies. Went downtown to the CEMA EOC first and fired up the Kenwood TS-450. Using the CEMA callsign N4CEM, I made contact with W1AW the ARRL headquarters in Newington, Connecticut. Nice bonus contact. Also tested the 2 meter radio and made contact with Matthew-KG4NKE and Greg-N4VAD.
Next, I went over to the Savannah Red Cross and fired up the Yaesu FT-857D and using the callsign K3SRC got a good check on 3975 with Greg-N4VAD. Thanks for the help Greg. Also spoke briefly on 146.970 with Doug-KF4EFP and Bob-KG6MUQ. Shut the HAM station down and brought up the SATCOM terminal and tested the satellite Internet access and Cisco Voice over IP phones. Everything worked fine. Good to go till next months test.
