AEN-MAR

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

11-1-2010 - Handling Confidential Information - KD7HLQ

08-11-2010

The topic was "HANDLING CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION".

27 stations checked in or participated in the net.

Ham Radio Operators often encounter information that could be considered confidential or sensitive. This especially includes identifying information about injured parties. Whether or not a piece of information should be transmitted often requires a judgment call on the part of the ham radio operator. If in doubt if something should be transmitted, consider asking net control before you transmit it.

There are several means available to protect sensitive information, at least to the greatest degree possible. Some of these include telephone, sending a courier with the information, using a less common mode such as CW or digital modes, and using a simplex frequency. Ham radio operators should be encouraged to use earpieces and protect who can hear their radios, especially during times when sensitive information might be passed.

Special thanks to Andrew, KF7CCC, for serving as Alternate Net Control.

Next Week's Topic: PORTABLE OPERATIONS - PART 1:  ANTENNAS
