Moving the Red Cross Radio Room

During a recent emergency drill, Bill, NB1LL, realized the existing Red Cross Ham Operation Radio Room would not be functional during a crisis; it was too small to accommodate the personnel and equipment needed.  As Regional Lead of the American Red Cross New Jersey Region, Ham Operations, he set out to find a more suitable space in the Fairfield, NJ Red Cross Building.  

Bill found a new office; then he just needed a few hands to help move furniture, radios and wire.  Ed K2BED, Henry KC2WRQ, Jerry WB2GZL and Richard KD2IIX, members from ARC Squared (ARC) an Amateur Radio Club for the volunteers and the staff of the American Red Cross and the West Essex Amateur Radio Club (WEARC) were happy to help.

Tuesday, March 19th, the team met at the Red Cross Building at 7pm to move the Radio Room.

Bill had previously located the cable antennas in the ceiling so there'd be no delay in moving them.

 The move took 2 hours and was accomplished in time for Bill to have the new Radio Room available for WinLink Training!

A 'shout out' to Ed K2BED, Henry KC2WRQ, Jerry WB2GZL and Richard KD2IIX for all their efforts!
