Default Civil Air Patrol

Yesterday(Sat.) the Civil Air Patrol was conducting a radio net in Brick Township at approx. 9am. There were two units on the net using 148.125. One of the unit was mobile and was using "RDF" signals, (I'll assume they were refering to radio direction finding equipment). The mobile unit was turning off of Rt. 88 onto Midstreams Road. This is the first time I've heard of a mobile unit conducting these kind of test. I couldn't post until today, had to go to work.

When I was a member of CAP (now retired with the rank of Major), we did these exercises all the time. Someone would plant an ELT in the woods and turn it on, the rest of us would go out and find it.

They refered to it as the "New Jersey Search and Rescue Drill". Anyone know what was causing that odd noise that sometimes happened when they finished TXing?

Yes, this is an old thread, but figured why create a new one.

CAP has had a major push to move from Wideband to Narrowband over the past few months and new Repeaters have replaced the old ones.

Cultivating information from the NET, it appears NJ has 4 Repeaters
NetCong, Hammonton, Franklin Lakes and Lakehurst.

Listening in New England, all the repeaters changed frequencies/tones
148.1250 and 148.1500 are still the pairs, but now 1250 is Primary
and 1500 is Secondary

Inputs have changed as well.

Anyone know [or care to listen on NET nights] the new tones?
Working on updates to the RR-WIKI
