      Hi, George, Matt and Fred,

           Thank you for circulating our request.  We've got an offer for a power supply and coax and we also have the masts we need.  We're in need of an HF vertical (not too long, as we will have to install it indoors), or someone familiar with setting up wires.  I have a Carolina Windom Compact 80 (69'), but I've never set up a wire before and I don't even know if I have all the accessories I need to do it.  I have plenty of rope, but, again, this would be an indoor installation.  If someone or two can assist with this sometime on Monday, preferably in the morning.  I can also be reached on the KB2UET repeater. 

           We are still very much in need of operators.

           Here is our frequency plan for this event:

           Thank you.

      There is no effort a man will not expend to avoid work.

      Good afternoon,
           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.
           Thank you.
