January D.E.A.R.S. “Fun” Net

It’s a New Year and time to kick it off by joining D.E.A.R.S. for our January “Fun” Net!

Please join us Wednesday, January 24th at 7 pm for the January D.E.A.R.S. “Fun” Net with the illustrious Bruce Keller at the helm as Net Control! Bruce is always delightful and makes our net “Fun”! Thank you once again, Bruce, for volunteering for Net Control. We really appreciate you!  Everyone is welcome to check in and share any traffic or announcements with us.

We will begin promptly at 7 pm Eastern Time. In the Orlando area you will find us on the D.E.A.R.S. repeater at frequency 147.300 PL 103.5.  Unfortunately, our EchoLink node is down at the moment and we apologize for the inconvenience.

Settle yourself in your radio shack, grab a cup of coffee in your D.E.A.R.S. coffee mug (right handed or left handed – either way works) and check in to the net. We want to know you are listening and we can be heard.

We love to share our net with all hams no matter where you may be located. This is a way to ensure we are being heard and our repeater is working properly and ready to be used in case of an emergency situation.

Don’t miss out on your opportunity to once again be a part of the “Fun” D.E.A.R.S. Net!!
