NFARL NETS

Tech Net

This net meets every Monday evening at 8:30 p.m. local time on the 145.47 (-) PL 100.0Hz machine.

The purpose of this net is to provide a forum for an open Q & A technical discussion of all Ham Radio related topics.  Pose your questions on the net (or send them to Jim at [email protected] beforehand) and others on the net will strive to answer them.

Participants use Google and a chat room during the net to search for information related to topics being discussed, document findings, and send URL links back and forth.  Here's how to get set up to participate in the net:

  1. Be at a computer from which you can Google information.
  2. Open a separate tab for the NFARL chat room hosted at NFARL.DODROPIN.ORG
  3. Tune your radio to 145.47 (-) PL 100.0Hz or log into 145.47 repeater ECHOlink node 560686 (NF4GA-R).  For more on EchoLink, visit our ECHOlink Overview page
  4. Check in when the net opens by saying your name, call-sign, and location.

Please join this exciting net each week.

YL Net

Overview

Hello Ladies! We’d like to invite all YLs around the world to join us on a fantastic Echolink YL net that takes place every Thursday evening at 8pm Eastern Time or 0000UTC Summer and 0100UTC Winter. Topics range from ham radio tips, ham radio trivia, YL ham radio history, Echolink tips/training, ARES or Emergency Service information, ham radio events, different logging methods, catching up with one another, etc.

The net is hosted by several Net Control Stations that Alternate from time to time including: Catherine KK4UBQ, Lori K4UPI, and Melanie KM4GQN.

We’d like to thank the North Fulton Amateur Radio League for usage of their repeater, ALARA for the use of the ALARA Echolink Conference Server, the Young Ladies’ Radio League (YLRL) and other numerous Ham Radio organizations local to Atlanta and abroad for your ongoing support of this net!

This net started back in October of 2014 and currently averages about 18 to 25 check-ins each week from all over the world including all over the US, Canada, Australia, UK, and Japan and the net is growing. We’d love for you to be a part of it! Please also invite all YLs that you know to join us too!

Again, the YL Net meets every Thursday evening at 8pm Eastern Time or 0000UTC Summer and 0100UTC Winter on ECHOlink ALARA Conference Node 286905 and the 145.47 (-) PL 100.0Hz repeater.

Following the YL Net, at 9:00PM YLs may join the YLRL (Young Ladies' Radio League) 20m net on 14.288MHz. 

We encourage all YLs who can be near a computer to do so and have our NFARL chat room open located at http://nfarl.dodropin.org.  This will allow us to share any information and links with other YLs on the net.

See you on the air! 33 de Catherine KK4UBQ
