WOOD COUNTY ARES BULLETIN NR 20.48      DATE: November 29, 2020  
SUBJECT: HAVE YOUR FREQUENCY LIST AVAILABLE  

If you have to call for additional communications assistance   during an emergency or disaster, be sure to have a list of your   operating frequencies and other information available when your   help shows up.  If you're asking for outside help, the least you   can do is provide them with whatever information they might need   to do their job.  

Your outside assistance may have all the communications equipment   they need to assist, but they may need other information so they   can set up their equipment the way it needs to be for your   operation.  Some organizations don't want their radio frequencies   known to everybody, and may not want to let that information out.   But, with the right equipment, the operating frequencies can be   found, but that may take some time, and time is something you may   not have enough of.  Not only is the frequency important, so is   the Private Line, Channel Guard, Quiet Channel, CTCSS, or other   subaudible tone name, or digital code which is needed to let the   radio system work with others.  

If your organization is one which might be called upon, you   should try to get the above information ahead of time so your   radios will be ready when you arrive to assist.
