Incident and event net traffic falls into two categories: formal message traffic and tactical traffic.
Tactical traffic consists of ad hoc messages about what is happening during an incident or event. And the purpose of a tactical traffic net is to enable all participating stations to pass traffic while it is still relevant.
Efficient tactical traffic nets engage in succinct and unambiguous communication through the disciplined use of a well practiced protocol which eliminates over identification and avoids the introduction of extraneous words.
One such tactical traffic net protocol is illustrated in a Tactical Communications Exercise conducted during an AEN-MAR net. In this recording you will hear net participants practicing their tactical communication protocol as they check-in, submit their reports, and engage in discussion.
