Frequency Coordinator

As more and more frequencies are put into use for fixed services (eg. links and repeaters) it becomes very important to have the frequencies coordinated to eliminate interference. To this end the ARRL maintains a system of frequency coordinators in each area of North America who maintain a database of frequencies in use which they use to recommend optimum frequencies to those amateurs wishing to set up new facilities.

The coordinator does not ASSIGN frequencies, only recommends, as he has no federal regulatory power and compliance is voluntary. Ham radio is basically self regulating and this is just another example of what can be done with a little co-operation. There can be no guarantees that any given frequency will be completely free of interference, but the coordinator will do his best to ensure that there is frequency and distance separation between stations.

As a matter of interest there are 248 coordinated frequencies in use in Saskatchewan in the vhf and uhf bands. Frequencies for linking in some areas of the province are becoming difficult to come by on the 440 MHz band.

Anyone wishing to set up a facility should contact the Saskatchewan Frequency Coordinator, supplying details such as location, call sign, station sponsor and preferred frequencies

ARES SECTIONS

Contact the Section Manager (SM) in your RAC Section for information. The Section Managers provide regular reports about activities in their area and these are published in the Section News of every issue of The Canadian Amateur Magazine. Their contact information is also shown on page 4 of each issue of TCA as shown below.

If the Section Manager is satisfied that you have the ability to properly recruit, organize and manage an ARES group, the SM or the Section Emergency Coordinator (SEC) will appoint you as an Emergency Coordinator (EC). You will then have access to the ARES training and reference material to get the job done right.

CEC = RAC Certified Emergency Coordinator

Do you have a net in your area?  Send us the information and we will put it on the webpage.  That way when folks are visiting your area, they know what time your nets are Please remember that all net controllers are volunteers.  If you would like to try your hand at doing 1 day (evening) please get hold of your local club and they can get you in touch with the Net Manager.  We would really appreciate a night off once in a while.

Net Procedure

Order of the Net:

At or about 9PM CST, the net control station will call the net to order and give a general preamble. There is often news and bulletins at this time from the NCS, usually other stations are asked to stand by with any bulletins until their area is called.

Emergency or Priority Traffic:

The NCS will ask if there is any emergency or priority traffic. Any other traffic must stand by until NCS proceeds.

Reports of Ill or Hospitalized Amateurs:

The NCS will ask if there is any bulletins or reports of ill or hospitalized amateurs. Any other traffic must stand by until NCS proceeds.

Checking Into the Net:

When your area/repeater is called for, you can at this time check into the net. Saskatchewan nodes will be called first, then out of province nodes and finally international nodes. The order of the nodes depends on the NCS. There is no set order. This net is a traffic net, therefore you must indicate if you have traffic. An example of a check in is as follows:

(A station without traffic)

NCS: "Any check ins for Saskatoon, please call now."
YOU: "VE5XYZ, no traffic."
NCS: "VE5XYZ, thank you for checking, further Saskatoon."

 (A station with traffic)

NCS: "Any check ins for Saskatoon, please call now."
YOU: "VE5XYZ"
NCS: "VE5XYZ, go ahead."
YOU: State your traffic

Closing the Net

The NCS will close the net at the end of all business. Usually he/she will ask if there is any further traffic or check ins from anywhere.
Once the NCS clears, the system is open for use again.
