The Alaska Pacific Emergency Preparedness Net

Copyright � 2018/ 2019 The Alaska Pacific Emergency Preparedness Net (version 2018 L2 12/16/2018 @ 1800)

14.292 MHz in the 20 meter ham band, Monday-Friday at 0830 Alaska Time (1730 UTC).

The Alaska Pacific Emergency Predaredness Net is one of the oldest emergency traffic handling nets on amateur radio.


The net originated in 1964 during the aftermath of the great Alaska earthquake known as the Good Friday Earthquake.

The net meets on 14.292 MHz in the 20 meter Ham band, Monday-Friday at 0830 Alaska Time (1730 UTC). This changes to 1630 UTC during daylight savings time.


The "A-P Net" originated as a result of the Good Friday Earthquake that struck Alaska in 1964.  During that disaster government and private communication systems failed, and Ham radio operators provided vital links to the rest of the world.  After the earthquake, the 14.292 frequency became known as “the place” for Alaska and Lower 49 hams to meet and pass traffic.


The Alaska Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management provides support to the net by printing and mailing the monthly rosters to the net control stations.  Over the years the net has grown to over 100 members, with an average of 60 check-ins each morning.  Fortunately, there have been no major disasters in Alaska in recent years, but when the need arises again, the Alaska-Pacific Emergency Preparedness Net will be there.


There is no cost to become a net member.  Check in as a visitor at least four times, then contact a net control operator or the net manager on the air or via email and request to become a member.
