Neighborhood Radio Watch

Join us on FRS/GMRS Channel 15! The Plantation Woods / John Hamm Road Neighborhood Channel!

And every Thursday evening at 7PM for our weekly John Hamm/Plantation Woods radio net!

The program concept is a self-organized community using FRS/GMRS radio for tactical communication support in a disaster. Basic radio net theory and practice is introduced to provide function dedicated nets including liaison to adjacent territories.

What are Radio “Safety Nets?”

Radio “Safety Nets” are an essential part  of any successful GMRS Neighborhood Radio Watch program.

Safety Nets are a regular, on-the-air, radio Meeting Place where residents can check in each week to learn and practice basic radio communications skills before an emergency or disaster strikes.

A weekly Radio Safety Net allows you to (a) check your radio to ensure it’s charged up and working, (b) ensure the area radio communications system itself is working, (c) get to know your neighbors, and (d) let others know that you’re OK.


NOTE: Neighborhood Radio Watch Programs ARE NOT a replacement for Emergency Services such as Police, Fire, the Sheriff's Office or 911. These programs are intended solely as a backup communications solution When All Else Fails.

When building your emergency kit for a hurricane, flood or similar disaster event, go to a hardware, sporting goods, or similar retail store and buy some FRS (Family Radio Service) walkie-talkies. Keep at least three sets of high quality alkaline batteries on hand for each radio. Rechargeable batteries cannot be charged if your electricity goes out.  Tune your radio to a clear channel and turn OFF all privacy codes (the second number should read 0 or 00). Practice using the walkie talkies with your family and neighbors under normal conditions.  Plan what you are going to say and do in different situations. This will help prepare you for a disaster. If you find yourself in need of assistance during an emergency in which landline or cell phones are inoperative, your FRS walkie talkie may be heard by rescuers in your area. Keep extra FRS walkie talkies and spare alkaline batteries in your home, boat and car. 

Keep extra FRS walkie talkies and spare alkaline batteries in your home, boat and car. 

In a REAL emergency, follow these 3 steps: 1) Turn on your FRS walkie talkie and set it  to Channel 1. Broadcast from an outside location or an upper floor of your home when possible. Wait for a break in activity on the channel, depress the push-to-talk button. Say your name, your exact location, and the nature of your emergency.  If time permits, concentrate your transmission at the top of the hour. 2) State your emergency two times. Say, for example:  "Emergency! This is John Smith. I am trapped inside my home at 1234 Main Street....over." Pause for 15 to 30 seconds and repeat if necessary. 3) Listen for 3 minutes for an answer. If you don't hear one, save your batteries by turning off your walkie talkie. Wait for a time or until the top of the next hour to call again. It’s as easy as 1... 2... 3... Call on channel 1 every hour. State your emergency and location twice. Listen for 3 minutes.  Keep channel 1 open for emergency calls. Use other channels for non-emergency or neighborhood coordination purposes.


REMEMBER! In an emergency / disaster type of situation, your cell phone may not work!


Recommended Channel Plan:

  • Channel 1 - RESERVED FOR GENERAL EMERGENCY TRAFFIC

  • Channel 2 - Emergency messages to be relayed to the neighborhood coordinator/ham operator for retransmission to regional networks

  • Channel 8 - Intra/Inter Family Communications

  • Channel 9 - Neighborhood light search and rescue efforts

  • Channel 10 - Evacuation/Relief/Health/Welfare efforts

  • Channel 5 - Secondary Emergency Message  Channel (Relay 1)

Channel 6 - Secondary Emergency Message Channel (Relay 2)

We use channel 15 for neighborhood communications around the Plantation Woods / John Hamm Road area. This allows us to use both FRS and also GMRS radios which are higher powered and have greater range. No tones or codes used. 

RECOMMENDED EQUIPMENT AND SUPPLIES:

The FRS is authorized 22 channels in the 462 MHz and 467 MHz range, all of which are shared with GMRS.

For an event that lasts more than 72 hours, here is what you should have on-hand to maintain reliable communication:  Two or more walkie-talkies for your family, one to monitor the rest to use  Alkaline batteries to match your radio. NiCad and NiMH batteries have their place, but they will not power your radios half as long as alkaline batteries and, without AC mains, there is no way to recharge them. Store your batteries in the freezer to extend their shelf life. Rotate them regularly.  Plastic zip-lock bags to protect your radios from rain or standing water.  AM/FM portable radio with spare batteries  NOAA All Hazards/Weather Radio with spare batteries (sometimes built in to a standard AM/FM).  Flashlight with spare batteries  DC car adapter for all the above, which is also a way to recharge NiCad batteries if necessary.
