Any Net Control Station operator can self-activate the EYEWARN Net in the event of a natural or man-made disaster where situational information gathering is desired for emergency management to determine the allocation of responding resources. Large scale disasters should be obvious, but a brief reason for the net should be given. If it is a training net indicate it as such below, choose a scenario and associated questions.
EYEWARN net participants need to learn and be familiar with the net procedures.
EYEWARN net control stations are trained specifically in net procedures.
Although not required, EYEWARN net participants are encouraged to take Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training when available to increase their personal and family knowledge, skills and abilities to be able to operate in difficult situations.
Did you just get your license and a radio but you don’t know if it is working correctly? Did you just buy a new antenna or microphone and want to know if your audio sounds better with the new equipment? Did you get your home station to work on 6 meters or 220 MHz but you can’t find anyone on the band to get a signal report? Here is a time to test your equipment.
The EYEWARN Net Control group will be hosting a radio test session after the regularly scheduled exercise net on every Tuesday evening @ 6:30 pm. The radio test session will be hosted by our EYEWARN Net Controller and is intended to provide a casual session of what and what doesn’t.
Tuesday NETS are a great way to confirm the signal strengths and practicing RELAYING weaker signals to NET Control
