Hams in the Prescott Arizona area supplied communications during the Doce fire. Here is the latest information.
On Wednesday the 29th, I received an email about 10 PM Arizona time from Amateur Radio Newsline to record a story and send it back as quick as possible.
Turned my mixer on and sat behind my HEIL PR-40 and 5 minutes later uploaded the story to Amateur Radio Newsline.

I have no excuse but once again I have been away from my radios. But as of today, KI7UP, Norman A. Seeley Jr. of Scottsdale Arizona is up to getting on the air.

Last night I went out into the Hot Scottsdale Arizona Sun, on our drive way so that I could hit the repeater for the Sunday night net.
The repeater is on White Tanks to the west of Phx and with my FT-60 I can hit it if I’m outside. Well, that wasn’t the case last night. When my call sign was called, and I pushed the Push to Talk button, nothing. I was not heard.
I have to say that I am more than a little bothered. I missed the net last week and now with not being able to hit the repeater, it now means I haven’t been there for two weeks.
Make me look foolish. It also tells me that I need to have a VHF/UHF antenna on our van or one on the house so that I can take advantage of connecting my Yaesu to a better antenna with in the case of the house, some height.
Even better than taking my handheld with me. People love to come up and talk to us.
Well, I was hoping I would be able to spend some time last night starting a 8 PM with the weekly local net on 10 meters.
It didn’t happen. So I’m still wondering if my ICOM 707 with wire antenna that was just last week re-connected were working.
So far, and today isn’t going to be one of those days, I have been able to at least listen for traffic on the 3 bands the antenna is tuned to.
