(go around to the back and ask to be let in). It is open to all licensed amateur radio operators who desire to serve the public in times of emergency and need.
We hope to discuss our new DMR repeater, 2017 Field Day, and practice EmComm digital modes.
Hope to see you there!
NEW on Saturdays:
A new net is the “World Wide” Net on Talk Group 91 (Brandmeister World Wide), Saturdays at 12:00 p.m. (E.D.T.) local time, on our new N4GAS DMR Repeater. This is run by net control in different countries, like England or Germany. We hope you will make some time and check into this international net.
