Put your nose in the license manual and get your General so you can join in on HF.

OK it appears 40 is best for all on first time out, lets give Sunday night (4/24/2016) on 7.250 + - 10 a go at around 8:00 PM EST if no go at that time will try again at 9:00 PM EST on same freq. I will be on dipole but also have a beam that I can swing if needed. I will call net as Forest River Owners Group 40 meter net. If anyone knows of a problem with that please let me know. I don't think we would be breaking any copy right laws. If anyone talks to FROG Bob please ask him about that. WB4FSN

Bummer, I'll be at Gunter Hill COE just west of Montgomery AL for an overnight stop and don't want to set up for maybe propagation for one night. I guess I'll have to wait until the following Sunday if the freq and time works out. Thanks for the work on this Roger. It looks like close to 16 interested so far in about 12 states.

Forbes, looks like I won't make the first check-in. I've been searching for things this afternoon but don't have everything found and hooked up yet. Plus, it has been awhile (2001 according to my last logbook entry) so there is going to some refresher needed with manuals. I have powered up the Kenwood TS-530S though and will be listening in.

WB4FSN, you had a very strong signal on both frequencies. Could not hear anyone else though. I tried to call a few times but my signal just wasn't getting out.

Good net tonight for first time out called net on 7.255, had check ins from 5 different states. Most where not FROG's but that does not matter all where interested in what was going on. Will call net again on Wed night at 9 pm. Come join the group. WB4FSN

Roger, it a good little net for the first night. I could barely hear you at 8pm. I called you then never got a response. But 9pm was a lot better. So were we the only frogs on frequency? I went up to 28.445 with y'all but only heard static. The band was pretty good for a little bit. Hopefully I'll get to check in with you again on Wednesday.
