Ragchew Net

On the repeater – tune in to 147.315 + PL 88.5

QST, QST, calling all radio amateurs from Gary, N2BBB, net control station for the SCRA ragchew net. This is a moderated, round-robin ragchew net intended to bring our members and non-members together in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere allowing us to have fun and make new friends. As this is a ragchew net, all stations are encouraged to stay around and participate in the ongoing conversation. All stations will be worked in the order they checked in, on a rotation basis.  The opening script for the net will provide more details.

The ragchew net will meet for about 60-90 minutes (unless closed earlier for lack of participants) to inform, enlighten and perhaps add a bit of humor to the day.  We invite all newcomers, especially new hams, to join us. Round-robin ragchew QSOs are in the true spirit of amateur radio and provide a format for the exchange of information and general discussion on technical tips, ham equipment, antennas, personal opinions, local weather, sports, your latest home project, gardening feats, and gear swap/buy/sell listings (consistent with Part 97 rules). Let’s try to avoid divisive, controversial political/social issues.

This is a moderated net. Check-ins will be taken based on the first letter of your callsign suffix, beginning with stations A-H, ALPHA through HOTEL then stations I-P INDIA through PAPA and lastly, stations Q-Z, QUEBEC through ZULU, establishing the rotation for the evening. There will be periodic calls by net control for late check-ins, and stations leaving the net can advise net control so they can be removed from the ongoing roundtable rotation.

We invite all hams to join the fun!
