Notes:

1. Ramsey County Emergency Management repeaters are not keying up with the information given on the MRC list. They are excluded here.
2. 25 watt mobile and external antenna is recommended. If a hand-held radio must be used, use the highest power setting and an external quarter wave antenna.
3. Backup repeaters will be announced by Duty NCS based on storm track and availability of repeaters.
