QuadNet Nets


The Amateur Radio RVer Net happens every Sunday night at 9:00pm ET (01:00 UTC DST, 02:00 UTC standard). We are going to try a weekly net for those amateur radio operators who also enjoy the RV lifestyle or for those thinking about it and needing more information about the RV lifestyle. The original net was started by Eric Udell, KN4MCE on Brandmeister DMR TG 31652. Seeking a wider audience we were granted a time slot on the Quadnet Array. The Brandmeister DMR TG 31652 will still be available for one on one QSOs between RVers. Sunday evening was selected since many RVers are already parked and making plans for upcoming trips. The net forum will emphasize amateur radio installations and operations pertinent to RVers. We will discuss travel suggestions as well as weather and road hazard information pertinent to RVers. With respect to RVs, discussions will be generic and not brand specific. RV lifestyle and general maintenance tips will be discussed. As a resource, we do participate on the Amateur Radio RVers Facebook page.

The VK1RWN DStar Repeater Multimode Net happens every Sunday 20:30 local time. This equates to 10:30 UTC April to October and 09:30 UTC October to April.
