I don't know about your area, but here in western NC, you could call forever on simplex vhf or uhf and never be heard. There is apparently very little activity on vhf simplex elsewhere also. Went all the way to New Orleans and back monitoring 146.52. Never heard a soul on simplex, but plenty of repeater activity. CB might be an option if you are close to a highway but if in the middle of nowhere I wouldn't expect an answer there either. And no one monitors channel 9 anymore. I wish ARRL would push hard for members to monitor simplex vhf-uhf as well as repeater frequencies but I don't see that happening. It's a shame. VHF/UHF simplex could be a lifesaver if cell service is unavailable.  Sad

As a reference, here is a link to the:

NATIONWIDE “ARRL ARES/RACES Emergency Operations Frequencies”
(Including Misc. Emergency, NTS and SATERN Nets)

http://www.arkansas-aresraces.org/NATIONWIDE%20ARRL%20ARES%20RACES%20FREQ.pdf

I printed them out and they are now in my Go-Bag. If you have a "better" reference, please post.

Wow, Marcus. Somebody went through a lot of work to find that, and then was nice enough to share it with the rest of us. Great find, although it may need updating now and then.

I totally agree Teak!

Tom, K5WTH has really put a lot of work into getting that list together and I am very grateful that he shared it with us on the Internet. I emailed him to ask for his permission if I may copy his work into a Wikipedia page which I intend to create so as to possibly have it more accessible via Search Engines, which may also be more update-able by the respective Nets, he immediately emailed his consent. Thank you Tom!

Any alternative suggestion on where this list should / could be published so that search engines have an easier time of finding it? I only stumbled across it since I browsed the Arkansas ARES website...

Wikipedia isn't really the place for updated net frequency lists. They're trying - more or less successfully - to be an encyclopedia.

Maybe put the continental nets on this page Amateur Radio Wiki: Nets, and put the local nets on a new page there?
