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

The YL Net meets every Thursday evening at 8:00PM on the 145.47 (-) PL 100.0Hz machine.

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.

The purpose of the YL net is to encourage YL participation in ham radio both locally and on HF.  It is also a way we can get together on the radio waves, get to know each other and have some fun!  While the net is to encourage YLs to get on the air, please be assured that we will have fun on all topics that interest the group and not just "tech and radio".  The radio discussions will be more generic to assist YLs with questions or concerns about getting on the local repeaters, getting on HF, protocol, etc.  We want all YLs to feel comfortable getting on the air.  The tech net on Monday evenings is a great resource for discussing the more technical aspects of ham radio and more detailed questions can be covered there.
