From Dave K7MTD
With the blessing of the HARC, I would like to announce that starting this Saturday Feb 19 at 0900 local time, I will be hosting a new social net on HARC frequency of 147.04 MHz, + 600 Hz offset, no tone. This will be an informal net. You are invited to share with others what you are doing, what fun (and not so fun) projects you are working on, share information or ask questions about something you need help with or your latest trip to Tahiti. There are no hard rules other than the customary FCC rules that we must adhere to. Commentary is always welcome.
Check-ins will be a little different than the Wednesday night formal net. I will call for check-ins and will wait until 3-5 call signs are received. When checking in, just give me your call sign, name, and location. When several are received, I will acknowledge you and then call on you in the order they were received. I will give priority to mobile stations. Typically you will have one time slot to say your piece, unless you have questions. It is not meant to be a ragchew with net control. Re-checks will be taken if you have additional comments or questions that may come up on the net.
This net is open to any licensed amateur radio operator in range of the repeater. Of course if anyone has any emergency traffic please do not hesitate to break in at any time. I will also share the general guide-lines of the net in the preamble. If you have comments or questions please let me know.
Thank you and I hope to hear from you Saturday.
