What's a "microphone"?

Subject:  PSK Digital Net
time ago we had a few of you that expressed an interest in starting up a HF
SSB Digital Net - primarily focused on PSK, but NOT exclusively
to! Over the summer months we've given it some serious thoughts and now that
time permits such activities, I thought I'd run it by you folks.
have loads of folks each and every day that are looking to join in on the
digital madness that our hobby has enjoyed for the last couple of years. And,
if we're to capitalize on this we need to better help these folks, don't you
think. At the same time we have a lot of our seasoned amateurs that are
experimenting with new software/hardware applications and we need to tap their
vast amount of knowledge. Wouldn't an HF SSB Digital Net make sense? I know a
few of you might have to find your old microphones, but it would be well worth
your efforts. We could address all the problems that the newbies to the
digital modes go through. Heck, this might even free up the e-mail demands on
such guys as Ernie Mills, WM2U who answers nearly 50 e-mails per night! And,
I'm sure there are a lot more of you that do the same.
OK. What I need
to hear is exactly who is interested. I know I'd be willing to get things
rolling, but let me make it perfectly clear, "I DON"T HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS!"
In fact, I'm better at just getting the folks checked in, then turn the
questions over to those who have the knowledge and first hand experience that
we'll need. So, we're going to need net control stations, we'll need folks
that are familiar with software/hardware applications, and we'll need the
bench technicians that can best describe all the wiring configurations to get
these new folks on-the-air, as easy as possible! I'm not sure what band
you folks think would be best, so give me your thoughts on that too.
If this idea sounds of interest to you please drop me a message. Let
me know if you'd be interested in being a new control station,
hardware/software advisors, technician and of course those that have an
interest in our digital modes. Plain and simple I need to hear
from as many of you as possible!
I look forward to hearing from you
and I appreciate you reading this message.
