CQ CQ CQ: Ham Radio – #ZedNet reminder – Sunday 28 Feb ’21

UPDATE 28 Feb:

14 last time!

Published on: Feb 20, 2021

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

Thanks to WB0YLE for taking Net Control last week.

Also, we now have the site running:  http://zednet.xyz

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

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.

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.

    Unfortunately I missed the net last night as I had family visiting. I was anxious to try it as I had made some adjustments to my codeplug. In the previous Zednet I was having problems where the first part of transmissions coming in were cut off sometimes just a few seconds and other times the whole transmission. Seems to be something in the radio as I can see the transmission register on the hotspot but the radio is silent. This is probably why I didn’t get recognized as I could not tell when the channel was clear to transmit. See what happens March 7th.

    One bit of good news is that I found out my parish priest is a Ham, extra class license even! He has a 2 meter rig in his car.

    I yesterday ordered Baofeng DM-5R and MMDVM Hotspot board for my RPi400. With any luck, I’ll be on Zednet soon!


  3. Terrific! For the last couple of weeks we’ve had a really interesting net. Two Sundays ago we discovered that a bunch of the hams praying with the Diurnal. It was amazing.
