Not this city! Many do not have battery backup. And those that do, they automatically switch to lower power to extend the life of the battery or they just die when the battery goes in less than six hours. That's why we train our members in NYC-ARECS to use simplex when the repeaters die like during the 2003 Blackout.Get into my truck and use NYC repeaters that have battery backup.
I was hoping someone would post that. (I don't want to be the only one talking about it - it makes me seem like a kook with an agenda. :lol: )
One of those, and maybe a deep-cycle battery, or two, or more.Here's some food for thought!
