K1ARC Red Cross Net Wednesday, Feb. 4, 8 PM EST

Hi Everyone,

The next K1ARC American Red Cross Emergency Training Net meets on Wednesday, February 4th at 8 PM (Eastern) on approximately 3.915 MHz plus or minus 5 kHz.

Please Note: If the band conditions are extremely crowded, then sometime the Net has to look for a clear frequency in excess of plus or minus 5 kHz.

All Amateur Radio operators who have a genuine interest in volunteer emergency communications are welcome to check into the K1ARC training nets.

The normal frequency for K1ARC is approximately 3.915 MHz plus or minus 5 kHz (Lower Side Band), however, this frequency may change during an emergency if necessary.

In addition to 3.915 MHz, please make a note of some of the other common Red Cross frequencies which include 7.280 MHz (LSB) and 147.42 (FM-Simplex). Typically, if 3.915 MHz is unusable due to poor daylight propagation during an actual emergency, then look for K1ARC to be on 7.280 MHz (+/- 5 kHz) during the day, and 3.915 MHz (+/- 5 kHz) from late afternoon to morning.
