Tech Net Update: After talking about it here on the Youth at Heart Net and at the Broken Arrow Amateur Radio Club Meeting this month, we have decided to try a Tech Net on this Frequency during the Youth at Heart Net, twice a month. The purpose of the Tech Net is to focus discussion of technical issues related to Amateur Radio. A big part of that is to provide a forum in which inexperienced (or less experienced) Amateur Radio operators may ask questions and thereby receive good advice. Our first Tech Net is scheduled to take place on Friday, December 5th and the second is scheduled for Wednesday, December 17th.
So if you have a question that you’ve been dying to get an answer to, this December 5th and 17th you can do a 2 Meter “shout out” on this frequency.
