Weekly Amateur Radio Net
Join us every Tuesday evening, 8:00-9:00 PM, for an informal amateur radio net aimed at training CERT responders in general radio practice and net control operations.
The net is hosted on the Allen CERT repeater; 441.300 MHz with a positive transmit offset and a PL tone of 179.9 Hz. If your radio was programmed by someone on the CERT communications team, the repeater is set as channel 004. A web chat facilitated through Skype will accompany the net so that non-licensees and/or non-equipped operators can still participate. A Skype account must be created (free of charge) in order to take advantage of this feature.
This net will have an informal agenda to provide enough time and opportunity for all operators to key their microphones and put some duty cycle on their equipment. However, once a month, the net will transform to a formal training that puts more focus on specific topics and may include guest speakers.
