ANNOUNCEMENT

Our first Amateur Radio Net will take place on Thursday 4/24/08 at 7:30 PM. Our Guest will be Gordon West. If you are a ham, you probably have already been introduced to Gordon through his books. If you are looking to get your first ham license or to upgrade, Gordon's teaching materials are the best.

For those Ham's in the greater Los Angeles area, your options to log in to the net are;

Keller Peak @ 146.385, with (+) offset and a PL of 146.2.
Fam Comm @ 146.610 and 445.760 ~ both with (-) offsets and PL 103.5 & 156.7.

For those Ham's in the San Diego Area, your option to log in to the net is:

Palomar Mountain @ 449.300 (-) (100.0) KA6UAI IRLP node 7870

Echolink users anywhere, use KE6TZG-L to talk & listen on Keller.

Please Note: Fam Comm and Palomar may not be up in time for this first net, so check in here to get the latest updates.

Tune in at 7:30 PM, every Thursday.

So... tonight's the night?

This is it, the night of nights
No more rehearsing and hearsing our parts
We know every part by heart

This is it, we'll hit the heights
And oh what heights we'll hit
On with the show this is it

Tonight what heights we'll hit
On with the show this is it.

I'm able to hit the Palomar repeater (Palomar Mountain @ 449.300 (-) (100.0) KA6UAI IRLP node 7870) full quieting from my home rig. Thanks Ollie. I'll be monitoring that freq.

I heard the net tonight. I'll be back each week. Although here from Pasadena I don't think anyone heard me when I transmitted.

I'll listen in on Echolink or through IRLP.

Thank you very much.

Hi Frank
Glad you could make the first net. I agree, we did not hear you. Looking back at my list from the check-in I do not see your call sign KG6JVE. Keep listening and try again. We expect to have more cabablity as time goes on.

I really enjoyed the net. I especially appreciated Gordo's info, since I recently upgraded to General Class and am in the process of getting an HF mobile radio. Did anyone record it? I would love to be able to play that back.

It was recorded and I am trying to get a listen (again). If there is enough interest in a podcast,(see home page), we will make it happen.

I will be listening in tonight,

I have been waiting to hear about this net for a while and just realized I missed it, thanks for getting the word out!

I have the capability to record the net if needed, I am not certain as to the quality of the signal at my location, so I will see what I can do.
