Default Dead Bands 3-3-3

There was a thread about dead bands and if people should come together at certain times. It got shut down but I don't know why. Anyway I was going to ask about the 3-3-3 plan and how it pertains to ham radio. I don't know what frequencies would be involved but at least the 3 will help. 3-3-3 Radio Plan for SHTF Communications | RadioMaster Reports

The 3-3-3 plan you reference talks about using "Channel 3".

I assume they are talking about FRS radios. It would be very difficult to get everyone to agree on what "Channel 3" means in the amateur radio bands since their are so many bands and modes available to amateur radio operators instead of the very limited number of channels and single mode available on FRS.

If this thread is going to be about amateur radio, I'll leave it here. If it's going to be about FRS, I'll move it to the GMRS/FRS forum.

Yes. My question is has anyone either received clarification on the 3-3-3 plan freqs for hams or is there a similar alternate plan I haven't heard of.

Default Applies to FRS/GRMS/MURS

A quick skimming of the article reveals that this 3-3-3 plan is designed for FRS or CB channels.

And I would like to offer that ham bands generally are not channelized. They use frequencies.

Seems that the 3-3-3 refers to every 3 hours, for 3 min. on Channel 3 FRS/GMRS, CB, MURS radios. For a 'Ham' equivalent see this link for AmRRON Regional/National Nets on 20, 40, & 80 meters; AmRRON Regional/National Nets : AMRRON
