Have you heard about the 3-3-3 prepper communication method? do you use something similar?
Yes..ABOUT THE 3-3-3 RADIO PLAN Here's how the 3-3-3 Radio Plan works: Turn on your radio. Every 3 hours. For at least 3 minutes. Channel 3.
WHEN: EVERY 3 HOURS
Always use your Local Time for local area communications with the 3-3-3 Radio Plan. At the top of the hour, each 3 hours:
Noon, 3pm, 6pm, 9pm.
Midnight, 3am, 6am, 9am.
HOW LONG: AT LEAST 3 MINUTES
At the top of every 3rd hour, turn on your radio. Even if you don't need to make a call yourself, always turn on your radio and listen for calls for at least 3 minutes. If you have sufficient battery power, or if you have not connected up for a while, then you should listen for 15 minutes. You never
know if someone may be trying to reach you, or may need help. If you need to check in, make a short transmission at this time. Say ..This is me, just checking in.
ACCURATE TIME KEEPING
Synchronize your watch with other radio operators whenever possible. If you doubt your watch accuracy, compensate by keeping your radio turned on for a longer duration, before and after every 3rd hour. If you don't have a watch, try listening to an AM broadcast radio station, they always identify their
call letters at the top of each hour.
WHERE: CHANNEL 3
Channel 3 is CB-3, FRS-3, or MURS-3.
CB, FRS, and MURS are the most common types of radios used by survivalists
HAM RADIO 3-3-3 RADIO PLAN
Ham radios don't have channel numbers. They have frequencies instead. A
channel is really just a specific frequency that has a purpose. Most hams use 146.520 MHz FM Simplex (No PL) as their 3-3-3 channel.
Some organized Prepper Ham groups use 146.420 FM Simplex.
Non-aligned Survivalist Hams use 146.550 Simplex as the Bug Out Channel (BOC) and 3-3-3.
The most commonly used local ham frequency could become a 3-3-3 channel for your area. But it probably should not be a repeater channel, because
repeaters may cease to function when SHTF! Instead, hams could use Simplex FM on the output frequency of the repeater.
