Tuesday Evening Net

MVARC holds a weekly social net on Tuesdays on the Maple Valley Repeater and simplex. The net starts at 2000 hours local time, Tuesday nights, on the repeater on 147.260+ (103.5). After the first round we switch to 146.540 simplex. Any licensed HAM anywhere is always welcome.

This is an informal net and everyone is encouraged to say hello - for more information contact Allen K7KNI. The net preamble is available here for download.
