This is NOT a preparedness meeting, but a preparedness Ham Radio Net that meets weekly on Sunday nights at the below frequency.
Anyone with a Ham Radio General license can participate in this net:
"East Coast (U.S.)
Standardized Frequency and Mode:
40 Meters – 7.242 MHz LSB (TAPRN Voice Net: Sundays at 9 PM EST)
*Because 7.242 may already be occupied, the Net Control Station may have to tune up the band for a clear frequency for each Sunday net. Outstations (that’s us) must tune to find the net, which announces itself precisely at 9 pm. A “pre-net” is usually in operation by 8:45 p.m., making finding the net and holding the freqency easier.
