Every Monday night, the Arizona Emergency Net – Maricopa meets on 2 meters FM for training and exercise in the public service communication arts. We focus on preparation and readiness for public service – be it scheduled events like bike races or drills, or emergencies such as storm damage or terrorist attacks. Someone has to be ready. This net is dedicated to addressing that challenge. The Arizona Emergency Net – Maricopa also activates during threats or emergencies affecting Maricopa County

4-12-2010 - MacGyver 101 - K7VZ


The topic was "MacGyver 101".

39 stations participated in the net.

Simulated failures during the net were power, tone, antenna, mic and transmitter. In the time allotted, most stations were able to recheck with a clean signal report after making needed repairs. This exercise prepares you to be ready and knowledgeable to recover in the case of an equipment failure.

As brought up on the net, here is a link that provides CTCSS tones in recorded format. It has .wav and .mp3 files for PL and CTCSS tones, and an easy-to- download zip file with all of them for stashing away on a hard drive somewhere.

Next weeks topic will be "Role of HF". The Arizona Emergency Net - Maricopa is a local VHF net. How can we take advantage of the over-the-horizon reach of HF ("high frequency", meaning the 160m ~ 10m ham bands) when the need arises? How can we offer our net resources to operations in parts of the state not reachable by Valley repeaters? Randy KCONNT, will be Net Control.
