"Club CHAT" can be used by any club for a 1-hour (or so) time period.
When a club is not using it, it can be used to CHAT.
Used as a DMR net, it can link club members worldwide.
Originally started to provide American Legion Amateur Operators with a way to communicate, it has expanded to ALL clubs on the planet Earth.
It would be really cool if, one day in the future, the Talk Group expands to users who are off the Earth!
A few of the clubs that use the TG are local – Scouting Clubs – American Legion Clubs – Volunteer Examiner Groups, and many others.
If you would like to schedule your club to use this TG, please email W4CEC@arrl.net with the following information, and it will be scheduled in the Google calendar, which can be made available for all to see and connect to for viewing.
I would like to personally thank Steve Haffly (NY4NC), Kevin Carpenter (KB4KAC), and Mark Gibson (N4MQU) for their diligence.
Their assistance in helping to establish this talk group has proven invaluable.
