Re: PODXS Net???
I hadn't thought about Net Logger or something similar (good idea
I started kicking the idea around a couple weeks ago after
stumbling on to an informal Contestia net in which I joined in.
It appears they were conducting their net the ol' fashion way; net
control called for members first using call prefixes, then calling
for non-members by prefix. Stations signing in to the net would
notify net control if they had priority traffic or not. Then net
control would repeat all the logged calls and then go through the
entire call list, starting with any priority traffic and give each
person an opportunity to say something. Some people used their
time to log a contact with someone else on the net (call sign
& signal report exchange) if they didn't have that station in
their log. Others would simply say something about their selves
(recent interesting contacts, local weather, still breathing...
that sort of thing).
Due to current conditions it might be a good idea to have a
couple "net controllers", one station west and one station east of
the Mississippi for relays that can hear each other.
Anyway, just thought i'd toss the idea out there. It seems there
is some interest in it and it might give other digital users an
opportunity to find PODXS via radio and join the club.
