April 2020 Meeting will be on the Air

Our monthly scheduled meeting is Monday, April 13th. Obviously we can’t meet in person due to COVD-19 and regulations. I would like to meet on our repeater, 147.165 (+123), for an informal net and get together to check in on each other and general conversation. Janese, KD8DGB, has graciously accepted to be our net control for the evening. We will start at 7:30pm, our normal time. I really hope to hear you, and even many guests, on the air.

In addition, if you have a DMR radio, we have plans to test out the XWARN talk group on the local DMR repeater after the informal net meeting. The XWARN Talk Group is 41 and the Timeslot is 1. The other items are set for the N8NQH repeater (444.8750+, CC 13).

Stay healthy everyone!
