Interested in taking on the challenge of starting a national or regional TALARC net and acting as net control, either HF or VHF/UHF, including IRLP or modes such as AM, CW or digital? 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 what mode and bands you'd like to try.  We'd be particularly interested in finding an American Legion post amateur radio program that would like to anchor a permanent TALARC net.
