Re: PODXS Net???

Bill Garwood

I have seen other nets on PSK31.  Might be something to do on some kind of rotating schedule on 20 and 40 meters.  My first question would be what is the purpose of this net?  If it is to allow a person to work as many different 070 members as possible, then only short contest like contacts should be encouraged.  Want to ragchew?  Then make a call and move to a different frequency from the net freq.   Would you encourage guests to participate, such as folks trying to join the club?  Needs to be thought out a bit but could work.  Maybe move to 30 meters once a month for those working on the 30-30 award etc.  I don’t think this would violate the gentlemen’s agreement for no contests on WARC bands.   Does not need to be in the middle of the regular PSK31 operations.  Maybe 14.072 and up or similar.


Happy Radio!

There is a net on the low end of 20m. Heard it a couple times.  From what I've heard, it sounds a bit like organized  chaos.  Heard people trying to hold frequency when some started calling CQ on "their frequency" or propagation shifted and others on net couldn't any longer.


Used to operate a few nets on 10m and then it took a net control ( NC) with a lot of patience and skill. 10-10 nets are sometimes run with assistant NC operators in different areas of country. Propagation lately might make nets very difficult. With many undisciplined PSK  operator these days,  running a net would be challenging at best.

That brings up an interesting question I’ve had for a while.. how do you run a net over PSK31? Is it workable?
