These non-commercial Radiograms, very much like telegrams, are a free public service provided by ham radio operators all over the globe. You don&rsquo;t have to be a ham radio operator to send a Radiogram, and you don&rsquo;t have to be a ham to receive one.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">Why? </p> <ul> <li> <p class="MsoNormal">For emgergencies when there are no other form of working communications in the affected area. When cell phones, regular phone lines, even electrical power fails...ham radio still works. </p> </li> <li> <p class="MsoNormal">Because hams have already built their own network to get messages anywhere in America, any time, under any conditions. It&rsquo;s called the <a href="http://www.arrl.org/FandES/field/pscm/sec2-ch1.html">National Traffic System</a>. </p> </li> <li> <p class="MsoNormal">Because hams train year-round, sending and delivering routine Radiograms, to stay in practice for the real thing.&nbsp; Next time an emergency breaks out, the Traffic System will be ready, and everybody involved in the Traffic System will know exactly what to do.&nbsp; </p> </li> </ul> <p class="MsoNormal"><i>That&rsquo;s the purpose of Tri-County Traffic Training Net.</i></p> <p class="MsoNormal">IF YOU'RE A HAM, please join us. Traffic handling is rewarding, fun, and the oldest tradition in ham radio. We train people on all aspects of efficient traffic handling. In the next emergency, message traffic may be coming your way.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">IF YOU'RE NOT A HAM, you can help us keep the machinery well-oiled by sending Radiograms to friends and family. It doesn&rsquo;t have to be anything of great importance; see below for suggestions. And of course, if you ever worried about someone in a disaster area, that you just can&rsquo;t reach, the hams of Tri-County Traffic Training Net will be standing by to make inquiries on your behalf.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">We hope to hear from you soon!</p> <p class="MsoNormal">-<span style="font-style: italic;">Gregg WB8YYS, Assistant Net Manager</span></p> <!--NEXT LINE OF CODE IS THE DIVIDING LINE--> <hr style="width: 100%; height: 2px;"> <!--ABOUT TRAFFIC NET BOX 2--> <h3>About Tri-County Traffic Training Net</h3> <p class="MsoNormal">TCTTN is part of the Ohio Section of the National Traffic System. The messages that we handle, collectively known as traffic, are sent on to the Ohio Single Sideband Net, where hams all over the state meet three times daily on short wave. Traffic bound for other states goes to the Eighth Region Net, which covers Ohio, Michigan, and West Virginia. Other nets cover other regions and states in an interlocking system designed to ensure that the message always gets through. It&rsquo;s sort of like the Pony Express, with radios.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">The ham operators who staff the Tri-County Traffic Training Net are volunteers from Lake, Geauga, Ashtabula, and surrounding counties. Thanks to the tremendous range of the Newbury repeater, hams from all over Northeast Ohio can check in to TCTTN, even with low-power hand-held radios.</p> <p style="height: 53px;" class="MsoNormal">TCTTN is a friendly place. People will be happy to help you get the hang of this traffic handling stuff. Nobody will criticize you if you make a mistake; we&rsquo;ll just help you do it better. And, once official business is squared away, the net moves to a comment round where friends catch up on what&rsquo;s new in their lives.</p> <h3> </h3> <!--NEXT LINE IS THE DIVIDING LINE--> <hr style="width: 100%; height: 2px;"> <!--RADIOGRAM BOX 3--> <h3>Suggested Radiogram Topics</h3> <p class="MsoNormal">Choose any combination of the topics below.
