Pre Field Day EMA Work Detail

There will be no ECT Training Net this evening. Take the time to get your gear ready and rest up for Field Day, which takes place this weekend, June 25-26 at Wassamki Springs Campground, (56 Saco Street, in Scarborough, ME).

We will be having a work detail at the Cumberland County EMA (CCEMA) bunker, located at 22 High Street, Windham, starting at 6:00PM this evening. The focus will be to clean out and load the communications trailer for Field Day. If you’d like to help out, feel free to stop by.

The next ECT Training Net will take place Thursday, July 28th at 7:00 PM on the W1QUI 147.090 (+ / 100) repeater.

WSSM-ECT Training Net – Tonight at 7:00 PM!

Please join us this evening at 7:00 PM on the W1QUI 147.090 (+ / 100) repeater, for our monthly WSSM-ECT On-Air Drill!

The topic for this evening will be to discuss our return to live meetings at the EMA bunker. After our net on the repeater, we’ll do a roll call of those who check-in, on 3940 kHz LSB, which is the Maine ARES primary frequency for night time HF ops. As always, we welcome any traffic for the net, either on 2 meters, or HF.

The purpose of this net is to focus on developing skills, such as familiarity with message forms, traffic handling, using modes like FM Simplex, Winlink, Packet, and the FLDigi suite, while fostering an interest in and recruiting newcomers to emergency communications.

Catch you on the air!

On-Air Drill This Thursday!

Please join us tomorrow evening, January 28th, at 7:00 PM on the W1QUI 147.090 (+ / 100) repeater, for our first On-Air Drill of the new year!

We’ll first meet on the repeater, where we can exchange traffic and share announcements, and once everyone’s checked-in, we’ll move over to 146.580 simplex for a roll call. On simplex, we’ll exchange signal reports with each other and note who we can copy.

Over the next few months, we’ll make use of other modes and bands, focusing on developing skills, such as familiarity with message forms, traffic handling, using modes like FM Simplex, Winlink, Packet, and the FLDigi suite, while fostering an interest in and recruiting newcomers to emergency communications.

Catch you on the air!
