CQ CQ CQ: #HamRadio – ZedNet will activate on SUNDAY

This morning I had a chat with a couple of hams over ZedNet.

We are going to have a directed “net” this coming Sunday, 6 December (2nd of Advent) at 2000h EST (0100 ZULU 7 Dec).

WIRESX (28598)
ALLSTAR (28868)
Brandmeister (31429)

NO ECHOLINK YET
NO DStar YET

If you are a ham and are interested in this to get yourself going, WB0YLE gave me a Bill of Materials.  A list of what you need.  HERE  It’s what I have. Basic, but it works. It doesn’t use a local repeater.  Rather the hotspot is in my home network.  I do have a “mobile” set up, identical, in a small bag and I can tether it to my mobile phone.

And… there are sunspots!  YAY!   Is our long solar winter ending?

I created a page for the List of YOUR callsigns.  HERE  Chime in or drop me a note if your call doesn’t appear in the list.

Please share this post!

    Time zone check: 2000 EST (UTC-5) = 0100 UTC, not 0200… I’m not sure of the start time and would hate to miss it!

    Will Echolink be working by then? I’m still in the process of getting and setting up a hotspot so won’t be able to connect to ZedNet via hotspot tomorrow.
