Don’t forget the Wed 80 Meter Net

NCRC, since last Fall, has been running a HF Net on 3.900 MHz on Wednesday nights at 7:30 PM local time.  Conditions have been excellent since the change to Daylight Saving Time, and its been fun hearing the participation increase each week.  Tonight, for example, we had 15 stations from RI, NH, MA and CT check in, almost all with excellent armchair signals.  Rich, KC1ARO checked in portable from his location in the White Mountains of NH using a 80 meter “Hamstick” on his car.

The other thing that is interesting is it is an opportunity to dust off some of the wonderful tube radios that we all have.  It is wonderful to hear a rig like the Drake TR4 or Swan 500 on the air with their sweet sounding audio.

So don’t forget, Wednesday nights, 3.900 MHz at 7:30 PM local time.  Hope to hear you soon!

PS:  check-ins for May 3 included the following:  KC1ARO, K1YBE, N1PSX, K1ECU, W1LY, WA1ABI, KC1HEP, WX1X, WB1CTP, W1DEC, AA1XQ, N1ENG, W1VAK, K1GHC, WB4SON
