November 6, 2016
1:00 pmto5:00 pm
The Dayton VA Medical Center is requesting amateur radio help Sunday November 6 for a 5k run/walk starting at 2:30 pm.
Hams need to report to building 305 at 1:00 pm for assignment.
I need bike mobile and fixed positions – some spots can stay in the car, some need to help direct traffic and all help report lead runner locations plus medical or other needs.  Some positions will get to leave sooner than others.
There is an event in volunteer connection on the Dayton General Opportunities calendar where Red Cross hams can sign up.  Non Red Cross volunteers and those not using VC can email sjcollins@woh.rr.com

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.

As a final option, listen on 145.11 simplex for any announcements as to where the net has moved.

MVPT Update
  May 1st, 2015

After over 10 years of being hosted on the febo.com servers through the kind generosity of John Ackerman, N8UR, the Miami Valley Priority Traffic (MVPT) list is transitioning to a new server. A hearty thank you to John for developing the MVPT list and his support of it over the years.

The Bellbrook Amateur Radio Club (BARC) has graciously agreed to be the new home of the MVPT list. Special thanks to Don Parker, KB8PSL and Russ Roysden, N8NPT for making this happen.

Anyone that was subscribed to the old MVPT server has been transferred to the new server and you should have received a subscribe notification message. No action is required on your part to continue receiving messages.

The new site to subscribe or manage your subscriptions is:

http://mail.bellbrookarc.org/mailman/listinfo/mvpt_bellbrookarc.org

Notifications will now be coming from mvpt@bellbrookarc.org. Please update any spam filters you may have to accept these messages.

Our first test of the new system will be during the District 3 ARES Net Wednesday, May 6th at 8:00PM Local.
