Great news! Lots of new nets showing upright here in Kansas City Wide:
The POTA Net is back! Join Steve KCØVYS at 8pm on Mondays to discuss your POTA gear, your contacts, or tips on activating/hunting!
Saturdays have been quiet on Kansas City Wide, but not any longer! On Saturday May 6th at 5 p.m. CST please welcome a new net “Food for Talk”. The program where farm families around the world share a little bit about who they are, where they live, and how they proudly grow or help feed our hungry world. “Food For Talk” is hosted by Boise Bob, K6OWF. Bob lives in Idaho, the state that potatoes call home. This should be a great net acknowledging some amazing people that make our world what it is today.
Also starting on Saturday at 6 p.m. CST beginning May 6th, the “Radio Check Net” will begin. Hosted by Chris KB2IDX, the net is designed to help people check out their radios. Included in that task Chris will be providing critical mic level reviews. As in: You’re too loud, or please turn it up. The goal being to try to get your voice to sound its best. We have all been there where one person is loud and the next person is soft. Chris (aka the Parrot) will try and give you an honest useful review. Chris also likes to help people learn about Fusion and Pi-Star systems. If you look at his QRZ page, he has lots of fancy digital radios. He will be happy to answer some of your questions when you stop by. It’s all about getting you launched on the digital highway.
I am also happy to report that the St. Louis “Gateway to the West’ net is really growing. It is on every Friday night at 8 p.m. CST. There are some wonderful people in the St. Louis area with a great ham radio heritage. The hosting crew has now grown to keep up with the expanding user base and includes John N0HKK, Chris KE0TTE and now Dolores KD0CIV. Please join them on Friday nights as a great transition into the weekend.
We’re always looking for great net hosts and there are still plenty of good time slots available. If you have an idea for a net and are willing to be the host, drop a note to Jerry KCØKW and tell him your ideas.
