If anyone wants to try an informal get together on the air, I'll try to be monitoring 14.340 this Saturday around 7PM EST for any fellow "TSP Ants".

Just sending this out again as a reminder. I'll try to be on the chat room here if you can't get on the air.

My Dad and I are usually on 7.280 at 2100hrs CDT on Tues and Thurs.  anybody wanting to chew is more than welcome to join in.  We use the time to practice our EMCOM and just shoot the breeze and are always in for some good conversation.  If we are not there or the freq is busy we usually go up 10 (7.290) or down 10 (7.270), but as of late we have not had any problems right there.  KD0KPX

I participate in an HF net that meets weekly with a goal of establishing a network of hams that if the shtf we can communicate. We meet weekly, mostly on 40m but have also worked psk31. If anyone has any interest in learning more. Please PM me.

When does that net get started (zulu time) and what frequency?

Also, FYI to prepper hams:  Have any of you seen this basic plan?

Standardized Amateur Radio Prepper Communications Plan

In the event of a nationwide catastrophic disaster, the nationwide network of Amateur Radio
licensed preppers will need a set of standardized meeting frequencies to share information
and coordinate activities between various prepper groups. This Standardized Amateur Radio
Communications Plan establishes a set of frequencies on the 80 meter, 40 meter, 20 meter,
and 2 meter Amateur Radio bands for use during these types of catastrophic disasters.
Routine nets will not be held on all of these frequencies, but preppers are encouraged to use
them when coordinating with other preppers on a routine basis. Routine nets may be
conducted by The American Preparedness Radio Net (TAPRN) on these or other frequencies
as they see fit. However, TAPRN will promote the use of these standardized frequencies by all
Amateur Radio licensed preppers during times of catastrophic disaster. The promotion of this
Standardized Amateur Radio Communications Plan is encouraged by all means within the
prepper community, including via Amateur Radio, Twitter, Facebook, and various blogs.

Standardized Frequencies and Modes

80 Meters – 3.818 MHz LSB (TAPRN Net: Sundays at 9 PM ET)
40 Meters – 7.242 MHz LSB
40 Meters Digital – 7.073 MHz USB PSK-31 (TAPRN Net: Sundays at 7:30 PM ET)
20 Meters – 14.242 MHz USB
2 Meters – 146.420 MHz FM

Nets and Network Etiquette

In times of nationwide catastrophic disaster, the ability of any one prepper to initiate and
sustain themselves as a net control may be limited by the availability of power and other
resource shortages. However, all licensed preppers are encouraged to maintain a listening
watch on these frequencies as often as possible during a catastrophic disaster. Preppers may
routinely announce themselves in the following manner:

• This is [Your Callsign Phonetically] in [Your State], maintaining a listening watch on
[Standard Frequency] for any preppers on frequency seeking information or looking to
provide information. Please call [Your Callsign Phonetically].
Preppers exchanging information that may require follow up should agree upon a designated
time to return to the frequency and provide further information. If other stations are utilizing
the frequency at the designated time you return, maintain watch and proceed with your
communications when those stations are finished. If your communications are urgent and the
stations on frequency are not passing information of a critical nature, interrupt with the word
“Break” and request use of the frequency.

For More Information

The American Preparedness Radio Network: or @TAPRN on Twitter
Catastrophe Network: or @CatastropheNet on Twitter

Here's the link to the plan if anyone is interested:

Maybe we should try and just pick a time every week and check in on whatever frequency each of us has available.  I have a general license, but only a 2 meter radio so (for example) I could check in every week on the above 2 meter freq.  Eventually nets will form.  You never know how many people may be just monitoring the above frequencies.  If we all pass this plan around the prepping community, more and more prepper hams will monitor those frequencies.

TAPRN gets booted off the air a lot. They loose their frequency often it seems. Everytime I try to check it there are issues. I should try again it's been a few months.
