The Wilderness Protocol

We received an interesting email about the “Wilderness Protocol”.  There are some useful ideas here.

Our simplified New England protocol would be to initially call on 1 or 2 and lastly 3.  Use a LiTZ (Long Tone Zero) on your DTMF pad :
1.  NEDECN SKYWARN/Emergency Talk Group 759
2.  NEDECN  Statewide Talk Group  31xx
3.  146.520 FM Simplex
On the Hour to conserve battery.  Once communication is established, STAY ON THAT CHANNEL!  LOCK IT.
