MVPT Issue 24 August
  August 24th, 2016

Dayton SKYWARN issued an MVPT page when it was activated Thursday afternoon, the 24th at 1633.

There were a large number of bounce backs from users with AOL accounts.

It appears to be an issue with AOL.  I would suggest you check your mail settings and ensure your spam filters are not rejecting the messages.

One suggestion to ensure that the address that issues the MVPT messages is entered into your AOL contacts list: mvpt@bellbrookarc.org

If you have any questions on how  to take these steps please contact AOL.

ARES Net Back Up Repeater
  June 15th, 2016

If the 145.110 is not available, the designated backup repeater is the Montgomery County ARES 146.640 MHz with a 123.0 Hz tone.

If Dayton SKYWARN is active and the 146.640 is in use, the net will be moved as determined by the DEC or NM  and Net Control operators.
