Five Dot Three net / VOA Radiogram Info

I originally added this info as comments to the original 5.3 Net post, but realized that comments don't show up in search results, so I'm including it as a separate page for future convenience.

The 5.3 voice net runs every Monday @ 1PM Pacific time on 60m Channel 1, 5.3305 MHz. The digital net (starting w/ MFSK32) is on channel #2 (5.3465 MHz) every Monday at 11:45 AM -- with early check-ins starting @ 11:15.

2nd & 4th Saturdays feature a voice net at 5PM, and on the 2nd Saturday it's followed by a digital net.

For the digital net, Fldigi w/ FLAMP is recommended.

The net is run by Christine Masters <af7ok22@gmail.com>

Another place to try out reception of text & pictures via FLdigi (receive only) is the VOA Radiogram, which is broadcast on Saturday and Sunday several times on different bands. For more info see http://voaradiogram.net/.
June 9, 2017: Saw announcement that VOA Radiogram is changing/moving. New site (not currently working) is http://www.swradiogram.net/.
