Being able to participate in a formal radio net and being a good Net Control Operator are important skills, and the best way to learn is BEFORE the disaster happens. ACS conducts two local radio nets per week to give radio operators living or working in San Francisco the opportunity to learn and practice these needed skills in a low-stress environment. ACS Nets are meant to simulate passing Emergency Traffic within a Directed Net - please remember your ABC's: Accuracy, Brevity, Clarity.

 

The Siren Net
Please visit the Outdoor Public Warning System webpage for information about the Siren Net held each Tuesday at noon.

The ACS Net
The ACS Net begins at 1930 hours (7:30 pm) local time each Thursday evening, on the WA6GG repeater at 442.050 MHz, positive offset, tone 127.3 Hz. The purpose of this net is to practice Net Control skills, practice checking in with deployment status in a formal net, and to share information regarding upcoming ACS events. All licensed amateur radio operators are welcome to check in. On the second Thursday of each month, a simplex net will be conducted on the output frequency of the WA6GG repeater, 442.050 MHz, no offset, tone 127.3 Hz.

The Travel Net
The ACS Travel Net begins at 1815 hours (6:15 pm) local time immediately before each ACS General Meeting (generally the third Tuesday of each month), on the WA6GG repeater at 442.050 MHz, positive offset, tone 127.3 Hz. The purpose of this net is to practice Net Control skills in a 1-on-1 supervised environment and to practice checking in with in-process deployment status in a formal net. All licensed amateur radio operators are welcome to check in.

 

Many thanks to the Northern California Association of Emergency Radio Operators for providing the WA6GG repeater for ACS nets and activities.
