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

3-14-2011 - Formal Message Traffic Handling - Part I - WB4ZKA


21 stations participated in the net.  Of those, 11 (52%) came prepared to copy formal message traffic, as requested.
We accomplished our dual objectives of learning the radiogram form and practicing 100% correct message copy.
(a)  Prepare 1 or 2 exercise messages to transmit next Monday night.  Fill out the complete radiogram form.
(b)  Monitor or participate in the Arizona Traffic and Emergency Net (ATEN), 3986 kHz LSB, 17:30 daily or the NTS 2 Meter Local Traffic Net on 147.160 on Mt Lemmon and 145.410 on Pinal Peak.  Both require pl 141.3.  The net meets every evening at 18:30 MST.
Two stations, Skip, K7OAH, and Bill, K7WWM, demonstrated good, clean, clear message passing while the rest of us copied in parallel.  Our thanks to Skip for showing us how it's done!
Download the radiogram form at, the Files section.  Print a half dozen or so copies for next Monday's net.

We had two new participants – Mike, KF7OGY, and Gary, KF7OGZ.  Welcome and congratulations on the new license!
