MIT Repeater Aids in Evacuation of MIT Undergrads

Over the weekend of March 14th the MIT Repeater W1XM/R saw heavy use in coordinating the relocation of undergraduate members of the MIT Radio Society. While not formally enlisted in MIT’s emergency response, the repeater proved invaluable for individual members of the club coordinating their relocation from MIT campus.

Over the week since, the repeater has remained a hub for communication between students still in the Greater Boston area.
