Whenever you bring up the North - South system, please keep in mind that you're talking over a very wide area. If your conversation is local, it's probably better on a local system. If it's just filling air time, think of all the other stations listening. Quiet helps us to monitor, especially late at night. Please remember that this system was designed to be used in emergency situations, and it must be available when needed. We appreciate you using the system cautiously, The Somerset and Cambria County Emergency Management Agencies.
Things to do:
Pause a moment between keying and talking. Leave a second or two between transmissions.
Use the network for regional SKYWARN, or ARES / RACES operations.
Participate in technical discussions relating to amateur radio.
Let someone from N-S know about your planned operations, in advance, whenever possible. (It helps us to make sure the system is ready.)
Send us performance reports by e-mail.
