Weekly Sunday Morning Net
The well-established Sunday 9am net operates on the repeater VE7SYD, with a UHF frequency of 442.275 MHz, up 5 MHz with a 136.5 Hz tone. This net has been in service for many years under the capable control of Frank, VE7DSN and will continue to be there for us. If you are using a beam antenna, aim it for the summit of Mt. Arrowsmith to the west of Parksville.
The Breakfast Bunch Week Day Net, Mon to Fri
Recently it was decided to try running a weekday net, also on VE7SYD, at 9am Monday through Friday. The name of the net is the Breakfast Bunch. The number of Check-ins has been encouraging with about 10 hams checking in each morning. More time is available to discuss any topic, technical or otherwise than on our Sunday net. All hams are invited to check in.
Net controllers for the Breakfast Bunch include:
Monday Rodney VA7FB
Tuesday Doug VA7AFR
Wednesday Mark VA7IX
Thursday Syd VE7PI
Friday Terry VA7EDX
There is no net on Saturday as many members are attending our coffee meetings at venues and times indicated on our Home page. Anyone is invited to join us at these informal get- togethers.
We are looking for check-ins from the Sunshine Coast areas, from Gibsons, Sechelt, Pender Harbour and Powell River to test the range of our repeaters.
Note: After the 9am Sunday net closes, Frank will QSY to VE7RPQ to pickup any hams who are not equipped to operate on UHF. Use 145.370 MHz, down 600 kHz with a 141.3 Hz tone.
