Simplex Nets

posted Mar 28, 2020, 1:35 PM by Charles Boling
To allow more opportunities for us to connect on the air -- and to stretch our simplex muscles -- we're going to add two VHF simplex nets during the week:
  • Sundays 9:30-9:45 AM
  • Thursdays 5:45-6:00 PM
Both nets will be held on 146.46 MHz. I will transmit a 100 Hz tone, but will keep my squelch open.

These will be semi-formal nets; I will announce them, and will act as net control as needed, but I predict that fewer people will participate than the repeater-based nets, and it may give the chance for more casual conversation. That said, Simplex will be a challenging reach between many points, so if you can help relay, that would be appreciated.

I will stay tuned until the designated ending time, even if there is no activity. If you don't hear anything, please call out!

Based on response, these nets may or may not become a permanent activity, and the times/days may change.
