Draft for review
Madison Ares will conduct periodic testing in coordination with our team and peers from adjacent counties to test and improve our communication capabilities. This testing will be above and beyond the weekly testing conducted on the Sunday night Net.
The connectivity and coverage pattern of our local repeaters will be tested on a monthly basis. The repeater tests will be conducted once a month depending on weather and other conditions immediately after the Sunday Night Net. This will be a round robin test of the repeaters listed below.
