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
-- 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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
