Two ERIN/UnchainedPreppers NETS Today Sunday December 16, 2018
« on: December 16, 2018, 11:19:30 AM »
Sorry for the short notice however you are all invited to two nets scheduled for today. Here is the PACE for both.

1500 hrs ET                                             1700 hrs ET
P: 7.249 Mhz                                            P: 3.850 Mhz
A: 3.850 Mhz                                            A: 7.249 Mhz
C: TEXT*                                                  C: TEXT*
E: Email via Tutanota                               E: Email via Tutanota

If you would like to participate but do not have a ham license you can listen to the nets using your Short Wave 'Grundig type' radio. A good antenna would be any type of wire put up 6' or higher configured in a square (Could be a circle or rectangle the length just needs to be ~65'). Each side of the square should be ~16' 3". Fasten one end of the wire to the positive hookup on the back of your radio and the other end to the negative lead.

Most SW radios us Kilohertz rather than Megahertz for tuning which in just means 7.249 Mhz turns into 7249 Khz. Tune that bad boy and Viola, you are there. If you do listen just give a AAR after the net via this email address.

   The propagation was decent at my QTH, I could hear everyone on the 75 meter frequency, once I put on the headphones.  John, which antenna did you end up using, because there was a big difference between the two.

Yes it is done BC and I am sorry that I did not post this sooner.

Propagation north of the Mason-Dixon line was decent and good to poor as far south as South Carolina.

We had six (6) folks on the 1700 net using 75/80-meters.

Jackalope, my NVIS antenna was by far the best tonight. My G5RV could pull in a signal but was hopping over our WVA and NY brothers.

Thank you for participating  :cheers:
