• My Friday Nets

    From Daryl Stout@HURRICAN to All on Fri Oct 2 00:01:44 2020
    You can find yours truly, Daryl Stout, WX4QZ, on this net today.
    A list of all the nets that I can be found on during the week is
    at https://www.theweatherwonder.com/elk.htm -- look for the link
    that notes "Nets Where WX4QZ is Net Control".

    Nets on The QuadNet Array utilize the modes of D-Star, DMR, WIRES, and
    System Fusion, together on one site. Go to https://www.openquad.net for details, and connection options.

    All times are in the US Time Zones. I normally start early checkins
    30 minutes prior to the start of the net. If I am unable to make it,
    due to weather, health, internet, or other issues, I will try to get a
    backup Net Control.



    Net Name: Trains And Railroads Net
    Meets On: The QuadNet Array
    Net Control: Daryl Stout, WX4QZ
    Alternate Net Control: Paul Frey, K9PTF
    Net Time: 8pm Eastern, 7pm Central, 6pm Mountain, 5pm Pacific
    Comments: The only requirement to checkin, is that you're a licensed
    amateur radio operator, with privileges to transmit on D-Star, DMR,
    WIRES, Fusion, or D-Rats.

    The net is done in honor of its predecessor, that ran on Echolink in
    the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area for over 8 years...and is in loving
    memory of my late uncle, K3VRM, for giving me my love of ham radio,
    and trains. He was the only other ham radio operator in my family,
    and the youngest engineer ever hired on by the Penn Central Railroad.

    On checkins, please advise if you are "short time". If that's the case,
    once ackowledged, you can secure your station at your leisure. Methods
    to checkin are as follows:

    1) On the QuadNet Array, via D-Star, DMR, WIRES, or Fusion. Go to https://openquad.net for connection options.

    2) Via the IM Utility with Netlogger (netlogger.org).

    3) On the St. Tammany Ratflector (sttammany.ratflector.com) on D-Rats.
    Thanks to Glen Strecker, KG5CEN, for the use of the ratflector.

    4) Via the D-Star Trains And Railroads Net Facebook Page.

    5) Via email to either wx4qz@arrl.net or wx4qz@winlink.org

    Checkin methods 3, 4, and 5, will automatically be noted as "short time".

    There is no penalty if you don't know the answer to the railroad trivia.
