Thanks AD, Christina already knows, I give her some feedback flowers. Next goal for me is to master code, may be a lofty goal but I'm persistent.  I have been trying to become cert qualified but in my ao, they don't seem to be real active.  I'm an oathkeeper and am trying to form CPT teams in my ao.  everything we can do to prepare is just another tool in the kit.  I am the county coordinator here and also the state comms director.  If you know of anyone in Arkansas who is interested in building a state wide comms net, HF or VHF, I'm am your guy.

We have tried to set up a PH net but did not get to far.   I believe we have a few here from your neck of the wood.  I can only run on 20 & 40 meters on hidden end fedz wires ina pine tree due to HOA rules. What freqs can you run on?

I joined CERT to be informed and to learn how the beast works from the inside.   8)

Having trouble myself setting up a net but have a couple so that is a start.  I can run from 10 to 80 meters, uhf and vhf, no HOA here but lot size and trees restrict me to about 80 feet.

Are you talking about the FEMA course IS 100?
