Greene County still needs help after Hurricane Irene

Last night I spoke with Len Signoretti, N2LEN. He was tired but still working hard at the Greene County ARES deployment. He is still looking for volunteers and could use all the help he can get. If you have any time this week and are in the New York area, please contact him at: (phone number removed after event) It is a rural area and they have a 2M / 440 local repeater up running for main communications. If you have a good 2M / 440 mobile rig, you are most welcome. Please help out if you can.

Update 9/9/11:
Just spoke to Len this evening. The ARES activation for Greene County was deactivated Tuesday Sept. 6th followed by a one day ARES activation on Wednesday Sept. 7th for area flooding and to fill in for a cellular outage in the area. I called Len on and off during the week and that man was working so hard I doubt he even remembers talking to me. Hats off to everyone who volunteered for the relief effort. Len said he had people coming in from far and wide to help out.
