Goochland County ARES Team Activation - April 26, 2011

April 26th seemed to just be another day and, as usual, I had already begun the central Virginia six meter net early list check in. There were two stations from North Carolina near Raleigh already waiting their turns for comments.

The phone rang with what I assumed to be my daughter’s morning call to her mom. This time however I answered the ring, and the voice on the other end I knew well.
