Reports when checking into nets should be something along the lines of
reporting your general area maybe county (don't want to give up to much info)
report your station level so we have a better idea of capabilites we are working with as a group. of course level 4 won't be able to check in but hopefully they can listen

Nice idea, but in situation x i think you would be wasting valuable time and effort trying to talk to people who won't be there.
If you are serious about wanting to do something to help using communications in the worst of conditions, why don't you get a proper licence and join an organisation like RAYNET or similar.
I think your efforts would be rewarded there, instead of a random ad-hoc network that frankly in the worst case senario would achive nothing.
What would be useful, is investigating HF stations arround the world, that could be used as a news source, and the frequencies / times / launguages they use, and their signal strengths in various parts of the world.
Sorry if i sound harsh, but the terminator style ending of the secret bunker and thousands of people calling out for help on a walmart radio aint gonna happen in real life.
