Communications Team Net


The Vista CERT Communications Team Net is held every Thursday at 1900 hours (7pm) on 146.535 mHz.

This is a directed net. Net control will welcome and call for visitors immediately following roll call of regular team members.

We look forward to hearing from you!



What is a "Net"?

ham radioA "Net" is an on-the-air meeting of amateur radio operators. Usually, the group's discussion centers on a particular topic; for Vista CERT we are practicing radio skills and proper etiquette in preparation for an emergency event that would benefit from radio communication. The "Net" helps members become familiar with each other, builds operator skill, provides a forum for questions and helps new operators get over the apprehension of "getting on the air".

A "directed net" means there are certain rules that must be followed. One operator, acting as Net Control, is responsible for moderating the conversation and keeping order on the air. There are protocols as well as FCC rules that must be followed.
