My old ex Air Force Colonel pal is living off the grid up there..but he is too smart to talk about it on Alfgores super highway. He has exotic stuff which would blow Aunt Myrtels dress up..plumb over her head. Loose lips sink ships..wink wink.

We have a small but fairly well established communications net in New Mexico. The nets are informal and everyone is welcome to check-in including non-hams using FRS/GMRS or CB.

We are a Christian, conservative, liberty minded group and we try very hard to avoid the "tinfoil hat" and "airsoft armageddon" crowds. Our goal is just to help keep like-minded people in touch with each other during a crises.

We currently have local nets in central and south central New Mexico that reach into far west Texas and eastern Arizona. Each of the local non-ham nets have ham radio operators that can pass traffic to and from regional and national NTS nets.

Local FRS/GMRS nets start at 6:00PM Wednesdays on FRS/GMRS channel 3

Local CB nets start at about 6:15PM Wednesdays on CB channel 3

Local 2 meter simplex nets start at about 6:45 on 146.420 (ham)

Most of the NMPRN members who are hams try to monitor 7.242 and 14.242 when they're near a radio. We'd like to start a regional net on HF if there's any interest.

Last spring I tried to get New Mexico people interested in a camp-out or meet and greet. This past year we have seen a lot of water under the bridge and I feel we are being pushed nearer to the edge. NMPRN has several good points about a ham radio network. The internet is not the place to talk about all emergency plans. Several states have had prepper shows, the ones I attended mostly were people trying to sell gimic gear instead of offering real skill-building exercises.
I am not talking of overthrowing the government, I am talking about what to pack to survive the night if you car slides off the road in a snow storm. How to sharpen a knife. How to make a campfire with what you carry in your pocket. Where to find good gear without paying a fortune. People, you don't have to invent the wheel, just learn what others before you have learned. Take Care

If someone wants to do a meet and greet in a central location, I would be interested. NMPRN was at our campout last March. Always great to see what others are doing and hear their thoughts and ideas.
