NEXT CLUB ACTIVITY/EVENT
Club Meeting - On the Air - via Amateur Radio
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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Most of all, Have Fun! Listen In and Check In!
