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

9-6-2010 - Blow out the Dust - K7VZ


The Arizona Emergency Net - Maricopa (AEN-MAR) will activate Monday night at 9 PM, as normal, unless a threat or emergency supersedes.

Standard frequencies:  Mt Ord 146.92(-) and Shaw Butte 147.24(+).  162.2 PL.


Summary: Monsoon season is nearly past.  Public service event season starts this month.  Time to dig out every piece of radio equipment you intend to use, put it on the air, and see what works.  And what doesn't.  Don't wait for your first event to find out what's broken.
Also, this is the 4-year birthday of the Arizona Emergency Net - Maricopa!  Some weeks, we've had over 40 participants, and some barely over 10, but it seems to still serve a purpose.  We will keep going another six months and look at its usefulness again.  Thank you to all those who have pitched in, participated, and received the benefit.  Bravo!

Virgil, K7VZ, will be out Net Control.  Dennis and Donna, N7NTM and N7LQK, volunteered for Alternate Net Control.

STREAMING AUDIO:  Gary got the bugs worked out.  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.
