Nets & Repeaters

Here is some local repeater information. These repeaters are managed and funded by individuals personally. All of us that use the repeaters should join the repeater associations and pay the minimal yearly dues to keep the repeaters on the air. If we do not do that, then your handi talkie will become useless as there will be no repeaters! Please join or donate time and money helping support the repeaters. See the notes below for access to the associations.

Net Schedule

2 Meter Monday Night Net at 8:00 PM on 147.090Mhz W4GDF repeater. Volunteers are needed to run the net: please email Richard W4JNC with the time slot you can do. Any spot can be run by anyone who is present. Just download the “Preamble” and “NetLog Worksheet” (buttons below), read it over the air. On the worksheet, write down the call signs and the first names of the callers and then call on them one at a time. Make note if they are “Mobile/Emergency power“, have an “announcement” to make, or are “In/Out” (not staying for the ragchew). The worksheet has a place for short “Notes” and a “Done?” column to check off when you have called on them (a placeholder). It is not hard to do and everyone should do it several times to practice as in case of an emergency, you may be called on to do this. Here is the schedule so far. Please volunteer as much as you can to practice this. Thank you, 73 N4PVH.
