Caribbean Safety and Security Net Announces Online User Survey

CSSN WANTS TO HEAR FROM YOU !

Please go to the CSSN web page (www.safetyandsecuritynet.com) to click and complete the CSSN 2013 USER SURVEY link at the top of the page. Takes less than five minutes.

The Caribbean Safety and Security net is a voice and web resource for cruisers and the marine community that was started 17 years ago and has been “staffed” by many dedicated volunteers over the course of it history. It is open to anyone who has HF (SSB) radio capability, or access to the internet.  It has adapted and evolved over the years in content and format as new needs became apparent, and new technology opened up new communications channels. CSSN remains dedicated to maintaining a centralized data source, collecting and disseminating accurate current and historic information about safety and security issues that affect yachts, allowing everyone to make informed decisions about their cruising destinations. In addition to reporting and logging incidents, the voice Net provides relays on emergency and priority messages from friends and family, boat watches for vessels missing or overdue, warnings of navigational hazards both natural and manmade, sources for medical services, and, as time allows, information on a variety of other topics, such as customs and immigration procedures and fees, other nets, sources of weather information, etc.

The team at CSSN has designed a simple, easily accessed, short (5 minutes or less) anonymous survey about CSSN voice and website services and usage and NEEDS to hear from as many of you as possible, users new and veteran, so we can best evaluate what we are doing, how we are doing it, and what we might do to improve the value we bring to the cruising community. Please take a moment to help us, and the larger cruising community in general by going to the CSSN web page (www.safetyandsecuritynet.com) to click and complete the CSSN 2013 USER SURVEY link at the top of the page. The survey results will be used by our team to increase our effectiveness to you, and will be published on the CSSN site. While you are visiting our web page take a moment to look around at the variety of information available on our site.  DO IT TODAY !

For those of you new to the region, CSSN has a voice net that meets daily at 1215 UTC (0815 AST) on 8104.0 kHz upper side band, for 5-10 minutes, just prior to Chris Parker’s 0830 AST weather forecast broadcast.  Every Sunday there is a weekly recap. Because the net is generally an exception/problem reporting net, we don’t know who is “out there” unless a problem is reported, so this survey is our link to ALL listeners and site users and VERY important to us. Please join us on 8104.0, and visit our website at www.safetyandsecuritynet.com . TELL US WHAT YOU THINK !

The Caribbean Safety and Security Net is primarily an interactive high frequency radio network of cruising yachts which meets each morning on single sideband frequency 8104.0 at 1215 UTC for the purpose of exchanging information with regard to safety and security concerns while cruising in the Eastern Caribbean.

The main purpose has always been to report and log incidents of crime against yachts, so that sailors in the Eastern Caribbean can make intelligent decisions about where to visit and how to behave while there. The Security Net does not track reports of crimes on land, unless those are committed in areas where yachts congregate: marinas, customs offices, etc.

While the reporting and logging of cruiser-related incidents is still a large part of Net activities, the Net has expanded into much more. Most people who listen and/or contribute see the Net as an information exchange and as a place to turn when there are questions or concerns about some part of this cruising life.

In addition to reporting and logging incidents, the Net provides a relay on emergency and priority messages from friends and family, boat watches for vessels missing or overdue, warnings of navigational hazards both natural and manmade, sources for medical services, and, as time allows, information on a variety of other topics, such as customs and immigration procedures and fees, other nets, sources of weather information, etc.
