W6BB Amateur Radio Emergency Communication Net
Since April 2011 the University of California Berkeley radio club, W6BB, runs a monthly emergency communication net.
The net takes place each FIRST WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH (AT NOON) immediately after the siren tests on the UC Berkeley campus.
There will be two or three net check-ins:
1) On repeater N6BRK: 440.9+ Mhz, PL 131.8 Hz
2) On repeater WA6HAM: 145.490- MHz, PL 107.2 Hz
3) On the Cal Bears 2m calling frequency: 146.430 Mhz simplex
Please program these channels into your radio and make it a habit to have an operational radio with you at all times.
We encourage all licensed radio amateurs in the Berkeley area (on and off campus) to participate.
Net control will be the first station receiving a response from a second station.
In the future we might introduce a different rotating system for net control to give practice opportunities to all the regularly participating hams.
Standby frequencies (currently not regularly monitored!)
