Saturday night meet up? (3/22/2014)
« on: March 21, 2014, 10:11:05 PM »
How'd some folks like to try and meet up tomorrow night on HF? I've also got access to an EchoLink repeater and I can put EchoLink on my phone, too. I'll be cutting wood tomorrow, so I won't be able to get on until evening/night. Probably around 6pm CST til 9 or 10. Just give me a time and a frequency! Keep it Tech or General; I don't have my Extra class yet.
So long, and thanks for all the fish

I should be available.  I'll meet you here and we'll pick a frequency then.

I guess we'll need everyone to post their call signs.  I'm <expletive deleted  :)>.  Real name PJ.

I'll try and tune in. My 80 meter dipole won't let me transmit on any freq. higher than about 21 MHz.

What's everyone's license class? That'll help us decide where we can meet. I'm a General but my antenna won't tune 160m. 80 and up I'll be ok on.

The TAPRN frequencies are 7.242 and 14.242.  I'd suggest 20 meters.

I just discovered that my 80 meter dipole will tune up on 10 meters :D. If this is to be done as SSB phone then 28.3-28.5 is about the only place techs can participate. I don't know if there is anybody with a tech license here wanting to join in or not. About an hour ago the conditions on 10m were pretty good but they are probably deteriorating rapidly.

Looks like somebody moved into 14.242 so we can maybe move up some.  VW, I'm up and running.  Is anyone else available?
