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

6-28-2010 - Spring Cleaning - KF7CCC


The Arizona Emergency Net - Maricopa met for a routine, training activation Monday night.

The topic was "SPRING CLEANING".

24 stations participated in the net. Of those, 16 had experience with public service using their radios in the last year; 8 did not.

The net discussed topics of interest now that the public service season is ending. These topics included:

- Power (storing batteries, generators, solar panels)
- General storage of electronics
- Keeping documentation up to date
- Opportunities for training
- Storage systems/rotation
- Key learnings of the public service event season
- What makes an event good for beginners

In general the net discussed the things to put away, how to put them away so that they'd be readily available, and how to improve station and technical abilities for public service in the future.

The general message was, "take care of what you have, and it will help you take care of others (and yourself)."

Welcome to first time net participants:

Robert, KC7WDP

Please check in as often as you can. We all benefit from each others' knowledge. If life gets in the way, don't worry if you need to miss a week.
