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

The Arizona Emergency Net - Maricopa met for a routine, training activation on
Monday evening, 11 June 2012.


We had 19 stations that participated in the net. Of those:
3 checked in as having had real-world disaster experience
2 checked in as AEN-MAR net controls
1 checked in as AEN-MAR alternate net control
2 checked in as having taken other assignments in AEN-MAR nets
5 checked in as having worked at MCECG events
6 checked in the "all other" category.


We reviewed information from the following nets:

Rules and Regulations
Public Service Job Descriptions
Alternate Net Control Training
A Square Peg in a Round Hole
Working with Non-Hams
FRS Radios
Portable Antennas
Transmit Boost Mode / Crossband Repeat

This summer will see us activating the net a few times, and we want to be
competent and confident when it happens. Thanks to all the people who
participated in the review. It was "ANOTHER JOB WELL DONE".


I want to thank Dave K1LPI for stepping forward and volunteering as Alternate
Net Control.
