REMINDER: TLARC Net/Zoom and split operation


Hi all,

Just to clarify that per the schedule shown on that there is "NO NET" officially scheduled during holiday weeks to give everyone some time with family or maybe you could just use a break.  :)  I won't be on tonight but Chuck is going to be NCS and David will be logging.  If you're around, be sure to give Chuck some practice.

Regarding Juan's comments and split operation, if you are not familiar with it the concept is pretty similar to repeater operation.  To get on the TLARC repeater, you are listening on one frequency and transmitting 5 MHz higher.  Split operation on HF works similarly but the offset isn't as much.  Maybe a few hundred Hz higher on CW, or a couple kHz higher on SSB.  Sometimes the DX station will say how much to go up.

The net convenes the 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th Wednesdays each month.  Those interested in becoming a weekly "Net Control" may contact Net Chair Randy Kruszka WK9M, and he will provide you the necessary information, script, and guidance to get you started.  This is a great training opportunity to develop your basic emergency communications skills...make the most of it!  We look forward to meeting you on the air and via Zoom tonite.
