The West River Radio Club Emergency Services Net.....
Every Monday, we hold our 2 Meter Net on the Marlboro, VT Repeater located on 147.015 with a positive offset and a 100 hz tone at 1930 (L). Please join us for activities that help us prepare for emergencies. Maybe you can setup a new rig, antenna, or anything that will help out our communications excel. Test it out and let's see if it works.
As of 1-APR-2012, the HF net has been suspended. We are evaluating the options of finding an 80 meter spot to operate upon. Once we find a frequency which we can to conduct the net, we will advise one and all about the resumption of the WRRC Weekly HF Net.
