We deal with simplex, dead carrier and the like with CTCSS - here in
the NYC metro area, almost all the 2m repeaters use 136.5 as their
CTCSS tone.  We've chosen 162.58 as our default Simplex operations
freq, and the group KNOWS that we run with 136.5 encode and decode -
part of our SOPs.

That's the one BIG advantage to running public service events.
Everyone says "operator training" - that's OK, but the biggest value
is in doing After Action debriefs and Reports.  Use THAT data to
change how you operate your team
