DUNKIRK'S OFFICIAL WEATHER STATION REPORT
I recently spoke with Police Chief
Dane Mumbower regarding a better form of communication for members of the
Community Watch Program. The device is a VHF/UHF Hand Held 2 Way Radio much like
the one the police use but at a vastly reduced cost. Less than $30.00
1. The radio would allow communications between a number of Community Watch Members at the same time.
2. In the even of a power putage and or cell tower outage ( tornado or sever thunderstorms ) the radio would still allow communications between members.
3. The radio would also act as a portable scanner allowing members to listen to Police, Fire, EMS, National Weather Service and Amateur Radio Operators.
4. The radio is portable and can be used in the car as well as outside or while walking.
5. No busy signals to worry about.
6. The radio has security features that allow complete communication security and prevents unauthorized communications either listening to or broadcasting on frequencies used by the Community Watch Members.
7. The radio has acccess to various communication services to include FRS and GMRS and the 5 MURS frequencies which is in the VHF Hi Band area near the police frequencies. The MURS frequencies are totally legal for citizens to use and would allow direct access to a police officer who could have one of these radios in his car. It would be understood that these are not toys and should only be used to communicate with any law enforcement offical on a desiganted frequencies possibly on one of the MURS frequencies which does not require any licenses whatsoever.
8. A weekly "met" could be established to provide all Community Watch members to communicate with other Watch Members to ask questions and provide valuable information between membrs during a "Net"
9. The radio has a built in bigh intensity "flashlight" feature built in to it.
10. The radio has a "hands free" VOX feature allowing you to communicate without pushing the transmit to talk button.
Additional features include :
136-174MHz VHF Frequencies
400-520MHz UHF Frequencies
4W/1W Transmit Power
Li-Ion Battery Pack
Rechargeable Battery Included
Busy Channel Lockout
CTCSS Manual Input
Backlit LCD Display

Talk with your children about what they should do during an emergency.
Keep important phone numbers listed by the telephone and teach children how and when to call 9-1-1.
