Dunbar Community Centre Vision Kit Test - 2023-03-11

We took a Vision deployable station kit to Dunbar in our March community centre drill.

Dunbar has an identical antenna to our main Tier 1 goto centres and the DSAs. We found two connectors for that one antenna, so we used the kit’s antenna instead.

Later, Anthony VE7XAK checked out the antenna connector with our colleagues in Dunbar Earthquake and Emergency Preparedness.
