Here’s a reminder about ZedNet for Sunday 10 Jan ’21 – evening at 2000h EST (0100h ZULU 4 Jan).
I hope some of you hams with DMR etc. access will check in!
Zednet exists on the Yaesu System Fusion (Wires-X) “room” 28598, which is cross-linked to Brandmeister DMR worldwide talkgroup 31429, which essentially gives world-wide multi-mode access to a common ham radio network. Right now, no Echolink. It worked once but not now.
Any fellow hams who have access locally to a Yaesu System Fusion repeater, a repeater on the BM network, or a multi-mode hotspot that’s registered with BM can get on and have a rag chew…. 24/7/365
Given what we are seeing with deplatforming and social media, big tech reign of terror, HAM RADIO may become increasingly important.
Is it time for you to get that license and put some equipment together? It is IMPORTANT that you start to NETWORK with others in your area, including a priest or two. We don’t know what is going to go down in the next few months.
For these USA, here is one study guide for the entry level license: Technician
Make sure that any version you get is the guide for exams through 2022!
The Kindle version is about $10.
And there is this.
Also, at QRZ, for example, there is a link to practice quizzes. HERE
It could be that you hams in other countries have suggestions for your own region and language.
Also, here is something sent by WB0YLE who keeps the pieces of ZedNet together. A diagram of how it all fits. Click for larger.
Anyone who uses Brandmeister ought to know this about their changes: HERE
In effect, they are applying security to their “masters”. They want you to set a personal password. I did and it works.
WB0YLE gave me a clear list, with links, of everything you need to get involved in ZedNet via Brandmeister. HERE THIS WAS UPDATED on 6 Jan 2021
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.
