Anybody want to set up a HF geocacher net?

I am set up for 40 mtr. I check in on the Sandia (spelling) net on 7.294 sporadically through the week. They have check in every night at 2:00 zulu (7pm Pacific).

 

If it's during the day 10 would work, 20 would be good also. If it's going to be later in the evening then 40 should be fine. But I do think that you need to figure out a time for the net, how many days of the week/ month, and see how many of us (here on the forums) would be willing to participate.

 

My $.02

How about 40 on CW so we don't have to fight QRM?

some of us dont tap (no cw). at least here in miami, most of the geocaching hams hang out on 147.000 mhz -600 . keep an ear out for kf4oui, kg4cnm, or myself ke4mcl. theres a few more but i'm having a brain fart right now and cant remember their calls.

Hmmm, I would think VHF is pretty much out for a national net. Figure out what time you want the net to meet, THEN pick a band. I would say evening is good for most people, so picka band accordingly.

Gee Mopar, took the words right our of my mouth.

 

I do sit in/talk on the Sandia net almost every night at 7pm Pacific. 7294 khz or make that 7.294 mhz......

 

And be sure that you checking with net control so that they can direct your traffic.

For us Techs, we can have a national net on VHF/UHF if we use IRLP (www.irlp.net). I am pretty new to the IRLP scene, but we've got a node here in Chicago and there are numerous reflectors that we could meet up on. Anyone want to give it a try? We'll need to contact a reflector owner to make sure a net is possible.

I dont care for a net but I would like to talk to other Cachers on the air. We might be putting an IRLP node here in Crescent City (The REAL Northern California) so we might be able to contact each other. What is your Node Number? I might be able to use a node out of Eureka, if they have one on 2 meters.

 

Yeasu/SuperRadioMan, what ever happend to you??????

 

Still waiting for you on the 40 meter band.

Is this SuperRadioMan? For some reason I think it is, I just dont want to go throught the hassle of "figuring" that out. What time before 3pm (Pacific) would you wan to do a cantact and on what freq? I can do 17 meters.

 

See you on the air.
