SATERN Nets

SATERN NET INFORMATION

There are 2 regional nets being conducted in the Central territory and you are encouraged to check in to them as you are able. The general purpose of these nets is for training through operating practice and experiencing propagation variation. During times of large scale disaster, these nets could be used for Salvation Army traffic.

The net information is:

Saturday at 1530Z on or about 7.265 MHz is the primary Central territory SATERN Net. Special event stations and contests sometimes require the net to relocate a few KHz up or down so you may have to tune around a bit.

On Thursday at 7:00PM Central Time (either standard or daylight Savings Time) there is a secondary SATERN Net on 60 meters. This is a channelized band with 5 Channels available. The net is held on the lowest available channel beginning at 5.330.50 MHz., USB. This band exhibits interesting propagation and appears to be especially useful for emergency communications.

* * * * *Traffic relevant to SATERN or TSA EDS is always welcome but is definitely not a prerequisite for checking in to either net.

Also, here are non-Central Territory SATERN nets that may be of interest to you:

The SOUTHERN TERRITORY SATERN HF SSB VOICE NET is on 7.262.0 MHz on Saturdays at 11:00 AM (Eastern) / 10:00 AM (Central).

The SOUTHERN TERRITORY SATERN HF DIGI-NET is on 14.065.0 MHz on Saturdays at 1:00 PM (Eastern) / 12:00 PM (Central). Default mode is OLIVIA 8/500 (8 Tones, 500 Wide) offset by the standard 1000 Hz.

The INTERNATIONAL SATERN HF SSB VOICE NET is on 14.265.0 MHz on Monday through Saturday at 1500 Z / 11:00 AM (Eastern) / 10:00 AM (Central).

Also, you may check out http://disaster.salvationarmyusa.org/ for the latest in news about The Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) and SATERN. Click the TRAINING tab then UPCOMING TRAINING and you can obtain a list of all Salvation Army EDS training by state.

March Events by N1YXU

March Events

Spring has (sort of, perhaps, hopefully) started to arrive here in North Carolina. The entire country is definitely due some sunshine! For those of you who are still suffering through the cold and snow, turn on your radios at the highest (legal) limit… Maybe, that will help the snow melt.

Otherwise, we’ll keep hoping that the APB out on Puxataney Phil will work. Until next month…..

Regards,
- Laurie Meier, N1YXU
