Montgomery County Priority Traffic List


In the event of a Montgomery County ARES or Skywarn activation, there is a mailing list available called the Montgomery County Priority Traffic List (MOCOPT) to notify you. This is a limited mailing list for messages that, as the stated in the title, are of a priority nature.


Type of traffic would be ARES Net activations, SKYWARN activations, placing operators on stand-by, or other important information. It will also be used during exercises when it would be appropriate if the situation was real.


It will NOT be used for routine things such as test sessions, radio equipment for sale, meeting announcements or general questions. Please direct those to the Miami Valley Amateur Radio Bulletin Board (MVARBB) or other channels.


The idea is to get information to people, that for one reason or another, do not want a lot of the routine messages, such as those with limited e-mail access, cell phones, pagers, or those who want to monitor from a work account.


Posting is restricted. Only designated persons will be able to post. The posters are limited to the District Emergency Coordinator (DEC), County Emergency Coordinator (EC) and designated Assistant Emergency Coordinators (AEC), Montgomery County Office of Emergency Management and Dayton Skywarn.
