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

2-20-2012 - Fox Hunt Exercise - K6OZY


Topic Summary:  Every public service event I've ever been on has suffered from at least one bout of "open mic".  Not malicious, but troublesome.  One skill that becomes valuable is tracking the transmitter using only the equipment on hand.  Much like classic "fox hunts" that employ all sorts of beams and tracking tools, but using the strength of numbers instead of specialized equipment. 


We'll exercise that technique.  You don't need elaborate equipment for this exercise, just the radio and antenna you have.


Preparation:  Learn how to switch to reverse split to listen to the repeater input frequency quickly.
