PSK Digital Net



Some 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.

We 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.

  Hi all..just  to let all of the 070'ers know that I have made it home Sunday night, Sept. 16th, after being one of the thousands of stranded travelers across the United States.  A three day drive (2,100 miles) from Phoenis, Az.,with my wife, was as experience that we will never forget.  Three days on the road compared to 5 hours in the air was not my way of getting home.  The people all across the country that we met at resturants, gas staions, hotels and the like were in the same situation we were in.  Everyone trying to get home from somewhere else. 
  The patroitism and love for our country was evident from the largest city to the smallest town across all the states we drove through.  Every radio station we listened to had a location for blood donations and were planning fund drives for the disaster in New York City.  Flags flew from every building in citys, large and small, and from homes as well.  GOD BLESS AMERICA was on marquees on theaters and store fronts.
  The small inconvenience that we and all travlers had to bear was nothing to the grief and suffering that was taking place from the loss of loved ones in this country and all around the world. 
   Let's all hope that this terrible attack on U.S. soil does not bring this country down to the level of our agressors.  The perpetraters, not the innocents should be punished.
  I now have to apologize to all (and especially N3DQU) for using this reflector for this kind of thing, but what started out as a Hi I"m Back, turned out to be a little longer and more detailed account of the last three days for me and my wife.  Thanks all for just reading this and if there are any hard feelings I will understand.

FARTS Challenged!

Ernest Mills <emills@...>

We, RED FRED et al, challenge the Old FARTS. Do we hear confirmation on this :)


Ernest Mills <emills@...>

I notice the Rumble Team "Old F.A.R.T.S." is now up to speed and nobody has challenged em! yet.  I reckon they must be a formidable team if we are all shying away.  Ernie

Although the terms of our Amateur radio licence do not permit us
to talk about political or religious matters on the air, and of course
yesterday's tragedy has elements of both, I would like to say by Internet that
our thoughts and prayers are with our US neighbours at this time.

Nice working you today John from the Pampanito. You are the first
