Club Meeting - On the Air


Club Meeting - On the Air - via Amateur Radio

Date: 3rd Saturday 21 March 2020
Time: 9:00 AM
Location: Mt Ogden 70 cm repeater 448.600 MHz (- offset, PL tone = 123.0)

"NETS" by Gil Leonard - NG7IL                NOTE: Net Format Outline               

OARC March club meeting at the Riverdale Fire Station will not be available for our use due to the abundance of caution on the part of Riverdale to stop the spread of the Corona Virus.

As an alternative Gil Leonard NG7IL will conduct an alternative meeting 'net' over the air. It's ironic that originally Gil planned to present to the club at the regular meeting on the topic of "Nets".
What an opportunity to demonstrate the resiliency and capabilities of amateur radio and amateur radio operators. This is as close to an actual emergency as we can get.
This is going to be MORE than just a net. It will be a virtual club meeting, a learning experience and fun to be had by all.
Listen in and be prepared to 'Check In' when the alphabetical sequence of your call sign comes up. 
Be creative and operate on emergency power and/or use a temporary antenna, maybe go mobile or operate from an unusual location.  
Here's an idea: Take a picture/selfie of yourself operating your radio OR a picture of your ham station, radio, antenna or mobile and email it to the OARC web master at w7su@arrl.net
Most of all, Have Fun! Listen In and Check In!
