EmComm Rag Chew Radio net
« on: Today at 06:06:36 AM »

There is a new Ham radio net on Tuesday nights at 8:00 pm Eastern.

The net is using the repeater on the top of Stone Mountain, sometimes called the Top of the Rock repeater.

The Alford Memorial Radio club runs the repeater.  http://totr-radio.org/

Repeater: W4BOC 146.760,- PL 107.2

And if you have EcoLink, there is a Echolink node.

We will also be using the NetLogger software that will allow user chat, and assists with logging contacts.

Net's Format: Present Topic of the week, Call for general check in’s, Make announcements (Club meeting dates and times, etc.), Discuss topic for the week. We will close the net officially after an hour, and then allow for people to continue the discussion if they wish.

Topics of discussion: Radio’s for Emergency communications, Batteries, Solar, Go-Kit gear/ 72 hour deployment bag, Antenna’s, Digital communication options, propagation, EmComm in real life, etc.

The goal is spread and share information about Emergency communications and to let people know about groups like ARES, and CERT. To let people know that even their local church or community may have the need for emergency communications in a disaster, and how participating in emergency communications can help the community at large.

This Net is not being organized by ARES, CERT, or any church but these are just examples of the types of groups that are using emergency communications today.

We have a Facebook page if you wish to follow links and documents posted after the net.

OKkkkkk...Just signed off of the net using Echolink. The subject tonight was batteries, specifically house batteries.

The knowledge imparted was top rate. Far better than TARPEN nets. I had to leave because I am getting up real early tomorrow; However, for you folks that have your Technicians permit or better, well worth your time to join in next Tuesday at 2000 hrs eastern. I am marking my calendar.

On another note: I hate using Echolink because of the delay but I will put up with it to check in again. Probably not comment unless someone steps on their d#$%k. Good net, good moderator, and some pretty dang intelligent comments.

Thx Nemo for your find.  :thumbsUp:
