Another option to add the this exercise might be Digipeater use:


Station1 -> Station2 as Digipeater -> Station3


Vera FM v4.01+ has this built-in.  Auto-relay using same frequency where station1 and station3 can not contact each other, but both can contact Station2. Using my station as a Digipeater, may bridge between OC and SB.


Setting Vera FM v4.01+ as a Digipeater:

Subject: [ARC2-SDICC] P2P Winlink Exercise Sat 9/11 (planning)

My friend Scott MacGillivray (KM6RTE) - (OCHEART) is planning a P2P exercise for Saturday 9/11 in Orange County. He will be setup in the Orange hills and I will be at Seaview park in South OC. We need a skilled operator to position themselves in North OC. We have a few sites in mind but are open to suggestions. 

I am writing to see if our group is interested in participating.  P2P is the “when all else fails” method of transmitting Winlink messages and ICS forms.  It is a critical skill to understand and practice.  We all would be operating from separate locations throughout the area.  This would be a radio only exercise. 

Who’s up to the challenge?

Side note: our neighbors SDG-ARES and LAX-ARES doe drills like this about once a quarter on a wide scale and more frequently within their geographic areas
