As you all know, Hurricane Sandy will be upon us in a number of hours. The City of Newark's Office of Emergency Management needs radio equipment and operators at a few locations to ensure that communications are lost. Here's what we need:
Operators at the Newark EOC and at a minimum of two shelters. Operators should have UHF/VHF mobile or base radios; a power supply; coax; a portable antenna (a J-pole should suffice); and an HT with 2 meter and 70 cm capabilities.
Equipment - We need the following additional equipment at the Newark EOC:
* A power supply capable of supporting two radios (a 50 watt UHF/VHF radio and an HF radio)
* A vertical HF antenna or a wire antenna capable of 80-= 10 meters
* 70 feet of coax
* 2 masts (4-6 feet in length)
If you can lend the equipment, I will be responsible for it and pick it up/drop it off. Please advise as soon as possible if you can serve as an operator and/or loan some equipment. Please be sure to describe what you have to lend and provide a phone number at which you can be reached. If you can assist, please let me know this afternoon, if possible.
