Go-To (Guard Ch.) Frequences ????

Recommended Posts

Are there any Go-To frequences set up within the group??? A place where members could meet/monitor in times of need. Maybe not just ham stuff, but other places. Free-Band, marine radio, GMRS, FRS, Business Band..... Dot Freqs ?????

I know of nothing specific within the group, but maybe others do.

 

I do have this information from TAPRN.

 

"Catastrophe Network and The American Preparedness Radio Network (TAPRN) have teamed up to create a Standardized Amateur Radio Prepper Communications Plan. This plan outlines a standard set of frequencies that should be used by all preppers following a catastrophic disaster. These frequencies will serve as a meeting point where information about the event can be shared and actions between like minded preppers can be communicated."

  • 80 Meters – 3.818 MHz LSB (TAPRN Net: Sundays at 9 PM ET)
  • 40 Meters – 7.242 MHz LSB
  • 40 Meters Morse Code / Digital – 7.073 MHz USB
  • 20 Meters – 14.242 MHz USB
  • 20 Meters Morse Code / Digital – 14.073 MHz USB
  • 2 Meters – 146.420 MHz FM
  • 440 (70 cm) – 446.420 MHz FM
  • FRS/GMRS – Channel 4 (462.6375 MHz)
  • CB – Channel 4 (27.005 MHz)
  • MURS – Channel 4 (154.570 MHz)

 

Here's the link to the complete article: http://www.catastrophenetwork.org/?page_id=446

 

I hope this is helpful.

Thanks, Silent, but everyone needs to remember that US hams do not have voice privileges in the CW (code) parts of the bands. While non-US hams often do, we do not. Using side band (USB) in those 7.073 or 14.073 is illegal and can cause a bad encounter with the government. I've talked to a couple of Canadian stations there that were using voice while I was using code. That is legal but picking up a microphone is not. Check out the band plan at http://www.arrl.org/band-plan and print out the band plan map for US hams. This would be a dumb reason to get crosswise with the Fed.

Note that not all levels of license have all privileges on all frequencies as well.

Thanks, Capt. I've used that chart many times.

 

And thanks for the caveats on band usage, too.

 

I am only tech licensed, so I would only be able to transmit voice on 70cm.

 

My own addition would be a reminder that one does not need a license to monitor any of the bands.

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
