CQ CQ CQ: Ham Radio – #ZedNet reminder – Sunday 14 Feb ’21

Here’s a reminder about ZedNet for Sexagesima Sunday 31 Jan ’21 – evening at 2000h EST (0100h ZULU 4 Jan).

Anyone who uses Brandmeister ought to know this about their changes – you need a personal password now: HERE  In effect, they applied security to their “masters”.  You must set a personal password.

I hope some of you hams with DMR etc. access will check in!

exists on the Yaesu System Fusion (Wires-X) “room” 28598, which is cross-linked to Brandmeister (BM) DMR worldwide talkgroup 31429, which essentially gives world-wide multi-mode access to a common ham radio network.

Echolink is running again!  WB0YLE-R

Fellow hams who have access locally to a Yaesu System Fusion repeater, a repeater on the BM network, or a multi-mode hotspot registered with BM can get on and have a rag chew…. 24/7/365

WB0YLE gave me a clear list, with links, of everything you need to get involved.


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.

Also, this was sent by WB0YLE who keeps the pieces of ZedNet working together.  Click for larger.

    It was great to be able to participate last night. I am always amazed when technology actually works as intended. Thanks to our host for starting this net and Brian Boyle for providing the instructions on how to set set up with the hotspot.

    I am getting back into ham radio after 40 years of inactivity. Last summer I started thinking this was a good thing to do, not really knowing why, but with a vague idea that there will come a time when I cannot rely on other forms of telecommunication. I’ve been surprised to see how many other Christians are having similar thoughts.

    I have a QRP CW radio (QCX+ 40 meters) that I built over Christmas break. I have tried it out once, and it worked great. I have bought nothing for VHF/UHF, partly because I am still trying to figure out these digital voice standards. It looks like DMR is the way to go for ZedNet, so I will be learning what I can about DMR, researching radios, and putting together a hotspot. Thanks to Fr. Z and WB0YLE for making this happen.

  3. greggraham: It seems to me that the easiest method is to use the list that WB0YLE posted, ZUMspot and a digital hand held.

  4. JonPatrick: We are getting a goodly number of check-ins, even though a couple of the regulars were not with us last night.
