  • PSK31 NET: Steve, N1AB, in Orange, Calif., is hoping to establish a 20 meter PSK31 net for TALARC digital mode fans. He will be calling "CQ TALARC" at 2200 UTC daily (or as his schedule permits) on or around 14.070 MHz. Watch for him on your waterfall and keyboard your answer! PSK31 is a terrific mode. It is very robust, requires very little power (50 watts is like 2 KW on SSB) and is great fun. And don’t just use your macros in your QSOs. Have a good old ragchew. It’s like texting – only better! (If you have questions or comments about the new PSK31 net Steve would like to hear from you directly at n1absteve@gmail.com.)

Those of you who would like to take on the challenge of starting a Regional TALARC net and acting as net control, either HF or VHF/UHF, please contact Bill Sloan, NZ9S, at the Legion National Headquarters via email: k9tal@legion.org. Let him know your idea for a particular region, what might be the best time/day schedule for you, and whether you'd like to try HF or VHF/UHF.
