Calling all PAARC members….
Yes, it’s that time of the year again when we run nets from locations other than our shack.
This year we’ll be running both the Magicians Net and the AM Mini Boat Anchor Net from high atop the Hopewell Fire Tower at French Creek State Park. We’ll be testing out new antennas that a few of our members recently purchased specifically for 6 meters. The antenna is called the OA-50, an omni directional antenna model made by Par Electronics. From initial tests, this thing really works. Let us know what you think.
Rigs & Antennas: The Magicians Net will be running a Yaesu FT-991, and the AM Mini Boat Anchor Net will run a Gonset (Gooney) G-50 for the AM portion of the net. Both stations will be sharing a Par Electronics OA-50 Omni Angle Antenna.
Times: We will start taking check-ins for the Magician’s Net at 8pm this coming Wednesday, August 31st rather than our regularly scheduled time of 8:30pm. Thank you Ed/K3BVQ for your support! The AM Mini-Boat Anchor Net will start at its usual time 9pm.
