Sunday Voice Nets – Noisy but Still Making It Happen
Thanks to everyone for being patient the last three weeks during the Sunday Voice Nets. It’s been pretty noisy, from QRM to QRN and everything inbetween, but it’s been good practice to find open frequencies on a busy band and carefully listen for folks (and/or perform relays) in less than desirable conditions. Kudos to everyone!
Despite the rough conditions, participation has been very good (anywhere between 15-20 folks), and we’ve even had two or three folks still checking in via the chat room when it’s too noisy for them that particular week. Special thanks to those who have made suggestions on topics. Last week we discussed how to protect electronics against EMPs and CMEs. Tonight we covered things to consider if you ever need to temporarily or permanently bug out – locations, routes, how to move a lot of items or heavy gear quickly, etc. Lots of good comments, and as always, enjoyable to hear everyone’s ideas.
One idea for next week’s topic is aquaponics. So God willing, we’ll have our next Sunday Net 3/3/13 at 9pm EST. Our default frequency is 3.818, but more than likely we’ll be a bit higher due to QRM.
As always, if someone has a suggestion for a topic, please feel free to comment here and we’ll do our best to fit it in during the upcoming weeks.
Long Live the Republic,
