Event Frequency Information

Primary UHF FM Simplex Frequency: 446.200 MHz, PL 100.0Hz
Secondary VHF FM Simplex Frequency: 147.560 MHz, PL 100.0Hz
APRS Frequency: 144.390 MHz

Rules:

(1) Net-Control has operational control of all aspects of the net. This is a directed net.

(2) Fielded Fixed Stations MUST have a full sized, pl tone capable, UHF/VHF mobile radio with a full sized mobile antenna. Handy Scratchies are optional.

(3) Roving Stations MUST have a minimum of a pl tone capable, UHF/VHF handy-scratchy. Bring plenty of batteries!!

(4) GPS Coordinates WILL be reported to net-control using the WGS84 Datum, Latitude and Longitude reported in degrees/decimal minutes. Use of a GPS is optional.

Directions to Net-Control

From ORACLE Junction: the intersection of HWY 79 with HWY 77 (a.k.a Oracle HWY):

(1) When you reach Oracle Junction, initially try to check in with Net-Control using the primary UHF frequency. If there is no response then try using the VHF frequency. Continue attempting to make contact with net-control until you get checked into the net (do not forget your PL tone).

(2) As you are heading from Oracle Junction to Oracle, proceed 4.8 +/- 0.2 miles down HWY 77 to the Willow Springs Road intersection. You will turn left (NORTH)onto Willow Springs Road.

(3) You will travel 9.3 +/- 0.2 miles on Willow Springs Road and do a nasty little 150-ish degree hairpin turn onto 24HOP way. Be careful, this turn off is VERY easy to miss. But during the event there will be an official check-in tent set up (food donations are here) and so it will be a no brainer to see where the turn off is at.

(4) Once you are on 24HOP way, Net-Control is located 1.62 +/- .01 miles from the hairpin turn.

(5) Electronic MAPS and GPS data are provided above, simply scroll up and download them as you see fit.
