Next SKECT meeting April 16, 2014 @
7:00p.m. in Sublette EMS building (South door)
In August 2006, Southwest Hospital Emergency Response Team (SHERT) contacted area
hams to investigate the feasibility of installing a voice VHF/UHF radio system for
redundant, backup communications for the hospitals in the Southwest region of Kansas
Southwest Kansas area Hams were contacted to attend a meeting to see if there was
enough interest in the ham community to take on such a large and complex project.
A series of meetings were held among the members of the group and some Area Emergency
Managers to discuss the best design and select the best equipment for a VHF/UHF
linked voice repeater system. 4 existing tower locations were chosen to install
the UHF repeaters.
