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

2-27-2012 - Tactical Communications Exercise - KE7VIN


New topic!  Channel bandwidth is a precious commodity on a tactical net.  Remember, a tactical net intends to move "right-now" messages while they're still relevant.  Extraneous words -- especially when everybody starts adding them out of habit -- add up quickly to limit how much message traffic can move across the net.  They especially add up during check-ins or when Net Control polls stations for reports.  We will focus on and exercise how to hit your message and move on.  Say more, clearly, with fewer words so others can get their traffic passed, too.
