11/19/2021 Practice Net 760 Repeater - UPDATED:

Our Net Agenda  was for situation reports only (Format Tango 9A – Hams; and Tango 9M - non hams).  

The SER Plan has a goal of processing 100+ Station Reports and have reporting from approximately 20 different Areas / Neighborhoods.  In order to “stress test” the SER Ham net processing, and practice for higher volume,  we are now including DRILL AREA REPORTS in the SER Nets. This will increase the number of Individual Area Reports being received by the Ham Net Control (i.e., the reports relayed into the Ham Net from Areas/Neighborhoods).  WHY? Because these are the reports which require the SER Ham Net to : Record each Area Report; Assign a control number; post and  process each report on Mapping Board (which is done by the NCS and each Ham Mapping Station);  prepare report summary; reconcile the report summary; perform  Analysis; and have Net Control to make Recommendations for Actions to be  taken or not taken.  Drill reports may include such matters as: communication failures,  earthquakes, etc… .  The more efficient the Area /Neighborhoods are run (i.e., all base level reporting done in each  Area Net following the SER Pan), will facilitate overall Ham and Area/Neighborhood reporting.

For this Practice Session, the Summary of Reports (all actual reports were QXA; some of the Drill Reports were for complete communications failure with no assistance needed) follows :

*   Ham – via e-mail ( bad comms at Ham station).  Note: if you can’t reach the repeater – try the 505 relay net (simplex as an option). Also, try adjusting o/s antenna as to location and/or height.

** Non Hams – via e-mails.  In emergency, non hams would use the Ham frequency

/F  DRILL- COMPLETE COMMUNICATION FAILURE          /Y DRILL  … NO ASSISTANCE REQUIRED

TOTAL NET TIME:

                                                             27 minutes  

Net time includes all Area Nets (on their respective CH 1’s); Ham Nets on Primary -760 and Relay-505; and standard Ham Net infrastructure Tacticals); reporting, summary and NC recommended action / non action.

 

During this Practice Session, one ham station conducted all of the  following operations: SER Ham Net Control; 505 Relay Control; Mapping 1; Cal Fire Monitor; 160 TC;  and acted as Area Coordinator for Village with inter-area relay.  WE NEED MORE HELP, BUT, THIS SHOWS HOW THE SER SYSTEM AND FORMATS WORK EFFICIENTLY AND RAPIDLY.  

PLEASE HAVE YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD JOIN IN. YOUR INDIVIDUAL NEIGHBORHOOD SITREP NET SHOULD ONLY TAKE YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD ABOUT 9 MINUTES TOTAL Emergency Activations will required additional time.

WE NEED MORE HAM RADIO OPERATORS TO HELP OUT AND FOLLOW THE SER PLAN.

Thank you.

11/16/2021  911 FAILURE FOR SHINGLETOWN.  Reports of dialing 911 from Frontier Land Line  and you get " ...all circuits are busy please try your call later".  Such reports made from several areas, including: Hayflat; Bible Belt, Circle K.  K6PDS called dispatch and arranged for a test 911 call from the Village (Frontier Land Line) - result same  ...all circuits are busy please try your call later".  Dispatch advised it has not received any report from Frontier yet.  Other Hams reported this problem has been existing for a while (exact time frame not reported).

QWI - Information advisory issued on 760 and Village Ch 1. 

NON HAMS: IF YOU HEAR AN EMERGENCY CALL ON HAM FREQUENCY, AND NO HAMS RESPOND THEN YOU SHOULD ANSWER THE CALL AND ASSIST. THAT WOULD BE CH 55 OR CH 58, DEPENDING ON WHICH FREQUENCY CALL CAME IN ON. 

Shingletown Emergency Communications Plan - just plug in.

The SER System Coordinates Ham Nets AND Individual Neighborhood Nets. This coordination has planned out approximately 20 individual neighborhoods. Under the SER System, each neighborhood Net is running at the same time as the other Neighborhood Nets. Each is on a coordinated frequency so that neighborhoods don't obstruct another neighborhoods reporting.

Next, under the SER Plan, the individual Neighborhood reports (detailed factual reporting) are combined through relay procedures into the Ham Net.. The Ham Net then Maps, transmits the summary Mapping results, and makes recommendation(s) as to course(s) of action or no action, based upon the reports.

This can be done in less than about 25 minutes and can cover about 150 square miles. All Areas can thus obtain overall situation awareness for all other Neighborhoods reporting in Shingletown. Operations include: Fires, ember checks, smoke checks, Power Outages, Communication failures, earthquakes, and more. Not all areas have taken advantage of the SER Plan. Why not join into a System that works. Just follow the SER Plan. Nathan

 

The SER System Coordinates Ham Nets AND the Individual Neighborhoods Nets. All Nets are running at the same time on different frequencies and individual Neighborhood reports are combined through relay into the Ham Net. All Areas can thus obtain overall situation awareness for all other Neighborhoods reporting in Shingletown.

MORE HAM RADIO OPERATORS ARE NEEDED.

Thank you.
