CQ CQ CQ: Ham Radio – #ZedNet reminder – 27 November ’22 – 1st Sunday of Advent

Fellow hams, it is time to revive ZedNet.

Here’s a notice about ZedNet for Sunday 27 Nov ’22 – evening at 2000h EST. (0100h ZULU Monday).

I’ve gotten my hardware working again.  I’ll keep my rig on.

So far so good with my DMR and Echolink.  WB0YLE is working on all the connections.   We were on the other day, he using Wires-X. There were some glitches, but it was working.

We now have the site running:  http://zednet.xyz   I have to get that updated.

Zednet exists on the…

  • Yaesu System Fusion (Wires-X) “room” 28598, and 83466 which is cross-linked to
  • Brandmeister (BM) DMR worldwide talkgroup 31429 (More HERE)
  • Echolink  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

Want to get involved? WB0YLE provided a Bill Of Materials, with links, for what you need. HERE  THIS WAS UPDATED on 22 March 2021  – And this may need another update.

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.

    Well you have a new customer here in Chile with our son in Chile. He is Dyslexic and 15 and his name is Thomas.

    He has been working feverishly to get up to speed on his reading because his adopted Chilean Uncle Francisco is gifting him a HAM radio once his homeschooling teacher (Mommy) declares he is at grade level or better.

    Well he has made it to “Grade Level” on his reading, Uncle Francisco has packed him away and shipped his first radio to him. Francisco is going to help him with the whole process and his license. He has bought him a USDX hf Transceiver. By the way, Thomas is a MATH wizard as he uses it in his business to build furniture.

    He is looking forward to contacting you Fr Z as soon as he gets legal. He has convinced his oldest brother who lives 1 hour north of London in the USAF to gear up as well. So it will be fun to see him get going and setting up his rig.

    I am not a HAM radio guy, but I am dyslexic (he got it from me) and it has been amazing to see the tenacity he has on achieving this goal. So keep him in your prayers and on your soon to contact list. Thomas in Chile.

    Hello, Father,
    I am going to try to make it tonight, but I’m having equipment issues.
    I will definitely be on next time, so hopefully we can get back to a weekly cadence.

Think, proof read, preview BEFORE posting!
