Emergency CommunicationsTrailer... Thanks, guys!
Arde Nelson Stops by to visit and check things out, His 100th Birthday
is on July 2nd so make sure to wish him Happy Birthday!
 
We had a good number of volunteers that made Field Day possible this year, kd8ovr, kd8fue, kg9gh with his wire stringing skills, k8ir saved the day with his radio & fantastic grilling, ke8kwu, ns8v with his great venison brats, and of course Brett & Jeromy for all the contacts they made! Thanks to all of you, and to everyone who visited us for making this a fun field day!

 

Our new EmComm trailer ready for dispatch! Served us well this field day making 471 contacts in dry, cool comfort. We owe many thanks to many people for bringing this to fruition.  The main drivers for this project is Doug (kd8ovr), Mike (kd8fue), Tim (wn6khg), Steve (k9stt), and also Bruce (n9con), Cal (k1sgw), AJ (kb7kz), and I am sure there were others. There were also material donors, SK - Floyd Croy (k8zlo Lots of radio equipment), The owners of the Shopko Building (desks & cabinets), Pete (ab9pj for UHF repeater and misc equipment).

~NET PREAMBLE~

Good evening everyone and welcome to the Marinette & Menominee Amateur Radio Club Sunday/Wednesday evening net, also known as the "Kandy Net/OR/Wednesday Edition". Your net control for this evening is __YOUR NAME___YOUR CALL_

 

This net is held each Sunday evening at 7pm CST on the W8PIF M&M ARC repeater with a tone of 107.2 both on transmit and receive.  We are also on Echolink node #481872

All ham radio operators within range of this repeater and all those hearing us on Echolink are encouraged and welcome to check-in.

 

This net features club news, station operator comments, plus news and updates from the YACHT young ham programs.

 

This is a directed net and all transmissions will go through this net control station.  Mobiles and those with emergency traffic are always given priority in transmission.

I will ask for Echolink check-ins first, followed by those accessing the net direct through the repeater.  Please give your call slowly, clearly, and phonetically.  

 

(a) echolink check-ins....

(b) repeater check-ins....

(c) Club news

(d) Any additional check-ins or comments....

(Pause for more check-ins every 10 or 15 min. and again at end of net.)

(Added)... You are also invited to check in to our mid-week net on Wed. 7pm CDST on the 147.000 repeater. 

 

Thanks for your participation this evening.  We had ___ check ins.  The next meeting of the club is on_______________. 

73 and have a good evening.  The W8PIF repeater is now returned to regular amateur use.  _____ is clear.
