New Radio Statio for Sylvan Grove Hospital

New amateur / ham  radio equipment has been purchased for a hospital using grant funding at Sylvan Grove Hospital, to be operated by the members of the Butt County Amateur Radio Emergency Service.

The equipment was provided by a grant from the Georgia Hospital Association. This equipment is typical of what they’ve provided. A lot of hospitals in the state have at least one radio connection.

The station, call sign WX4BCA, was launched and tested on 3rd October 2015 during a national emergency communications exercise that simulates a biologic attack on Atlanta.
