Operation Red Bird II Commex ARES Support

We had a successful exercise at Fort Stewart and Clay Natl Guard Center yesterday. We worked with the GA Natl Guard and GA State Defense Force to test various methods of sending messaging between the two locations. Thanks to Dan Scott-KF4MND and Greg Bandish-W5GKB for their help with me at the Fort Stewart side and to the Cobb County ARES team at the Dobbins ARB side. Here's a diagram of our net along with some pictures from the Fort Stewart location.
