Operating  procedures for radio volunteers in times of emergencies, disasters, and  calamities, as outlined and defined by the National Telecommunications  Commission

I  have been looking for SOPs for traffic handling and management during  emergencies, and this document seems to be the best reference. You can  find this from the NTC Website: Memorandum Order 05–09–2012.

I am also including MO 04–09–2012: Establishment of an emergency radio and communications protocol for MMDRRMC.

This also references OPLAN Metro Yakal or the Metro Manila Earthquake Contingency Plan.

This may be timely, especially given the magnitude 7.0 earthquake that hit Abra in Northern Luzon on July 27, 2022.

thanks  ;D

Let's wait for Hans to provide inputs. Alam ko he tried to use wln radio before when we were still on UHF.
Hi Lot. I understand. If there were a nationwide standard frequency like your 144.390, then perhaps it would be acceptable.

I guess the concern also is leaving a digipeater unattended at the repeater site. Crossbanding it to UHF somewhere at a station where there is a control operator can make any issues easier to address (e.g., programming, adjustments, etc.)

Regarding winlink connections via APRS digipeater, I think it will involve using a softmodem like direwolf and using a digipeater software that can handle both APRS and winlink. Isn't that what linPBQ does? Or I think it also handles the softmodem, too.

I have no experience with that, since I mostly use direwolf for APRS digipeating, as well as as the KISS terminal for other packet uses.

Hi Guys, . . . a regional repeater site would mean a regional frequency. Here in socal we do have digipeaters that are setup on repeater sites, but we also have coordinated frequency for packet and aprs. Also, we might need a radio that has a good receiver or else we will get lots of interference. Maybe better on UHF and get it cross-digipeat from another aprs station below. We have 2 AEA-PK96 and a KPC-3 plus we can use for any project that might come up. Is it possible to digipeat a winlink connection via an APRS digipeater? 73 de lot / k6irf/dw3irf
