I have kept updating the local ham rosters, activation procedures and instructions, and fixed emergency station assignments for the three areas and have added one additional area in the County of San Mateo, North Fair Oaks (NFO). This County area borders Menlo Park and Atherton. What I have been working on for the past few years is having each city/area assigned its own EC.”
