On Sunday, 25 January 2015, at 3pm (Eastern Time) the AUXCOMM Network will be conducting another volunteer HF emergency communications training net for all AuxComm personnel within the United States. The primary purpose of this net is to allow all amateur radio operators and opportunity to test out their equipment and get signal reports from three net control stations (NCSs) which will be spread out between Florida and Illinois. Operating on both the 20 and 40 meter bands, this one hour test will allow all amateur radio operators the opportunity to contact all three net controls on all both bands which are typically used for emergency communications. The following matrix should be used when participating: (all times are Eastern)
Station 3pm_______3:15pm 3:30pm 3:45pm 4pm
(Washington, DC) 7.186 14.282 7.186 14.282 Finish
(Chicago, IL) 14.322 7.236 14.322 7.236 Finish
(Orlando, FL) 7.263 14.228 7.263 14.228 Finish
Frequency’s maybe +/- 5 kHz depending on QRM/QRN. Try to hit all three net control stations using all six frequencies. Net Controls will be logging your call signs, locations and signal reports.
This training net is coordinated by volunteer amateur radio operators. It has nothing to do with any government entity and is not intended to replace any of the great HF nets that various EMCOMM organizations currently have on the air. This training net is for all amateur radio operators. Especially those who provide public safety with emergency backup communications.
