The American Legion Amateur Radio Club hosts both an HF Net and an IRLP Net on the second Saturday of each month. As interest and participation grows, we will begin requesting volunteer Assistant Net Control Operators to help us. (Many thanks to Bill, KI0CW, for already giving us a hand over the last few months as we explored several different HF bands and frequencies.)
High Frequency: Look for the TALARC HF Net to begin at 1 p.m. EDT (1700 UTC) USB voice on 20 meters near 14.310 MHz, hosted by Craig, W3CRR. Keep trying—and listen for KI0CW in South Dakota (or other assistant net control operators) to relay your information to W3CRR.
IRLP: The TALARC IRLP Net, for those of you with UHF/VHF and access to a local IRLP repeater, will begin one hour later at 2 p.m. EDT (1800 UTC) on the IRLP Crossroads Reflector 9200 on channel 9205.
CW: We don't plan a CW net at this time, but look for K9TAL, our HQ radio shack, to be operating CW intermittently on 15 meters during our special event net operations during the 94th Commemoration of The American Legion Birthday, March 16-16, 2013.
Other modes: K9TAL is not yet set up for digital modes—but we plan to install that capability very soon, or enlist volunteer Net Controls who would like to give it a go. We'll keep you posted.
