The American Prepper Radio Network (Sunday Net)
« on: September 22, 2013, 08:26:05 PM »
Reminder: every Sunday there is a net held in SSB (apparently voice can be sent over radio - who knew?) Right now the freq is 'around' 7242LSB, depending upon interference.  It will move UP the band to find a clear spot.  Net control is Ruth, whose voice is easy to find on a band filled with grumpy old men.   >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(  :-*  >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(


'SEE' you on the radio.  This is the one time per week I am in voice on the radio.

Thanks. Listening now.  At first I thought I was hearing QRM but then I realized I had the mode still on CW ::)

Thanks for the signal reports.  I'm running the old M700 marine SSB from the boat into a 130' off-center-fed dipole up about 70 feet.

Terry I heard Ruth call you, didn't hear your reply at all...
I tried to check in, wasn't heard.
I might try in CW.

I heard a little bit of Terry directly. He would be easy copy in CW!

Can't find my microphone but I am monitoring ;D .


Having not been on SSB for close to 2 years now I forgot how tiring it is listening to a bunch of weak phone signals among the horrendous static and various band noise that a wiiiiiiiiiiiiide 2.3 kHz SSB filter lets through. Back to CW now.

Apparently nobody hears me, 12W LSB. That voice stuff doesn't work!

This was with the WIDE filters in the marine SSB rig.  It would have been even better with the narrow filters ont he QRP rig. (but YOU know that...)
