Ashe County ARC Members Install Equipment at EOC

After many years of bad weather, schedule conflicts, and numerous other interruptions, Ashe County Emergency management now has a fully functional HF/VHF/UHF station at the Emergency Operations Center.  Although, the weather was less than desirable, Steve Adams, KK4IDH, Marc Scott, KK4OII, Hunter Scott, and Marty Norris W4MLN braved the elements on the morning of Monday, December 22, 2014 and installed the Hustler 5BTV for HF and a new Diamond X-50 for VHF and UHF.  The X-50 replaced a wind whipped crippled Hustler G7 that had been in service for more than twenty years.  We would like to thank Patty Gambill, Ashe County Emergency Management Coordinator, and Barry Woodie and his staff in the maintenance department for making this installation a reality.
