Summary Checklist

  1. FRIDAY before you leave, print out this page and adjacent sites
  2. Begin the day with a message to ANSRVR: CQ AT or CQ OT from root station call
  3. Initial coordination on you're PUBLISHED repeater for adjacent nodes
  4. Monitor 445.925 MHz simplex directly when you are in place
  5. As emergency backup VOICE on the AT channel 144.340 MHz might work
  6. Use assigned AT-CALLSIGN-SSID on DIGIPEATER station on 144.340 MHz
  7. Use the same root CALL on the other 144.390 coordination packet station
  8. Maintain your status via occasional ANSRVR messages on 144.390 MHz
  9. Do not message stations on the 144.340 MHz event channel until OK'ed.
  10. If you do message on .34, send it to BLN#XXXXX
  11. Remember all identical root callsigns will capture a message but only the SSID-MATCHING station will send back an ACK
  12. Do NOT expect acks! They are unreliable. Assume ur msg worked.
  13. Minimize messages on 144.390 MHz due to de-sensing your main event RX
  14. READ your incoming messages periodically to make sure your buffer does not saturate with unread messages, and then send REJECTS (D700 holds 10 (or 16?), but D710 holds 100)

Save settings and callsigns in a PM, so that if power is cycled, you come back up and can continue operating properly. Be sure to set AUTO-PM-SAVE-OFF so that any screw-ups during operating are not re-saved into the PM...
