If Repeaters are down

Simplex Coverage PERC performs simplex nets and equipment tests regularly, one purpose is to learn which other members and guests we can reach without a repeater. This way we know who we can talk to if we ever need to without a repeater. To that purpose, we took the location of our core membership (active members as of September 1, 2013) and did a combine plot of coverage. A 5 watt handheld with a good antenna (perhaps more than the rubber duck included) should be able to reach ONE or more PERC members in the green area shown on this plot using only simplex on a 2 meter FM radio.
