Just want first to acknowledge your message. As for coordinating monthly
checks, we have a meeting this Friday and can discuss it. It should
probably work out OK. Several or our hams already test weekly on the Port
Townsend repeater at 9:00 to about 9:15 am Wednesdays, so having an FRS
radio standing by for your check in at 9:05 could work. It might however
mean a delay for a response to your call if we are busy transmitting on VHF.
I wonder if five minutes before the hour (8:55) would work better? Some of
us aren't all that good at multitasking (speaking of myself).
