Wednesday Night Nets

The BEARS group recognizes a need for Bitterroot-wide two-way comms outside our repeater network. To that end we are working our own gear towards NVIS (Near Vertical Incidence Skywave) as a contingency.

Wednesday at 1700hrs (5:00pm) we will try our hand at communicating locally on 3.850 MHz. 

We should have our 2-meters on 146.720 as an alternate route to aid tuning, training and Elmering for folks working to get their NVIS setups working.

Nets tonight include:
BEARS NVIS:     1700hrs on 3.850 MHz
Montana Traffic Net:  nominally     1730hrs on 3.910 MHz *
BARC 10-meter:     1915hrs on 28.350 MHz (mostly vertical antennas)
BARC 2-meter:     2015hrs on 146.720 MHz

* (80-meter band conditions deteriorate in the evening,
thus Montana Traffic Net is starting a bit earlier nowadays)
