Georgia -
 
I have a similar rig (706 instead of a 7000). I sometimes use the log periodic vertically polarized (long elements straight up and down) for FM, then change to horizontal when I'm ready to do SSB.
 
I'm planning on playing with/monitoring 2M SSB from after the net until at least 2015 - probably 2030 - so you might have time to set up your 7000 for SSB after the net. Would be a good idea if you can get Jim SST to show you the ropes, although it's pretty straightforward (antenna horz polarized, tune to VHF frequency and set mode to USB).
 
I'm not sure which frequency I'll be using, except that it will not be 144.230 USB. I'm planning on monitoring the SSB portion of the band (144.100 to 144.750 USB) during the net, then selecting something that appears clear. Will let everyone know the frequency during the questions portion of the net.
 
73,
 
Jerry

I'd LOVE to play 2M SSB.  But, it would be a first for me.  I have the ICOM-7000 and a log periodic antenna that I can throw up atop my CERT pole.  Those would be the key ingredients, right?  Only problem is that I'm net control this Tues for the ARC Net, so don't want to risk messing that up.  Your thoughts, Jim/Jerry?

Hi, All!

Since I will be at Chapter HQ on Tuesday I was wondering if any team members with 2M SSB capability would like to have a short net after our regular net. I'm planning on checking into the regular weak signal net usually held at 1945 (IIRC 144.230), but before or after I can swing the beam around the county and see which team members I can pick up.

73,

Jerry

Hi, All!
 
Latest roster and net assignments attached.
 
You probably noticed that there are some open North Check-In and South Check-In slots. Looking for some more volunteers to fill them.
 
This is a good opportunity for you folks who don't get a lot of talk time to get some experience running part of the net. No experience necessary - we train on the job!
 
Thanks & 73,
 
Jerry

AUTUMN SENTINEL - Thank You!

"Jerry - AK6QJ" <ak6qj-radioguy@...>
 

Greetings!

I would like to thank all of you who participated in our readiness
exercise yesterday! From the comments both during and after the
debrief everyone seemed to have enjoyed the activities, and we all
learned something about how we might respond as members of the RCCT
during a disaster response operation.

In my opinion, the exercise ran better than I expected. This was the
first time the Team developed and participated in a formal functional
exercise. A number of new concepts, guidelines and tools were
introduced. The Team adapted quickly, and messages were efficiently
transmitted and received. The participants should be especially proud
of the fact that the various Field Teams reacted quickly and
correctly during the "Lost Repeater" drill.

We are already planning SPRING SENTINEL, with an earthquake theme
[grin], hopefully to be held March or April of next year. As soon as
we have a chance to review the results from yesterday's exercise
we'll start developing drills and other activities to help all of us
improve our skills.

73,

Jerry aka AK6QJ

Not sure about availability, just got off work. I suppose I'll just show up somewhere. Usually I would do mass care.
