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

1-11-2010 - Sounds that you hear on the air - WB4ZKA



Topic Summary: Our squelch circuits lead us to believe that when a ham isn't talking, the RF spectrum is quiet. It ain't. Sometimes, bleeps, blurps, buzzes, and whistles sneak out of our speakers and we wonder, "What in the world was that?" The key is to recognize some of those sounds and what they tell you about your own and other stations.

Preparation: I need a few more volunteers to demonstrate packet, power supply hum, flourescent light hum, loose mic jack, failing HT battery, and a couple variations of doubling (like we need help doing that on this net!), and a few others that you can think of. E-mail me (only me, please) if you're willing to volunteer.

I will be Net Control. Bill, K7WWM, volunteered to be our Alternate Net Control.

STREAMING AUDIO: Going to be away from your radio or out of town next Monday night? Listen to live audio feed at, thanks to Gary Felix, W7TXR.
