Basic Radio Procedures for Activations

Unless otherwise directed, you should follow these instructions

First station to appear begins a net and records call signs and availability.
If a repeater becomes unusable, immediately go to the next available repeater.
If all repeaters become unusable, IMMEDIATELY GO TO THE SIMPLEX
INPUT OF THE PRIMARY REPEATER (146.040 for County, 146.280 for State)
If you abandon a repeater due to failure, you should periodically recheck to see if the
condition was temporary and the repeater is again usable.
If you “get lost” in this process, begin at the top and work downward, inquiring via radio,
at each step.
If all else fails, try HF, ~3923 kHz or ~7232 kHz
