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: PCL Packet Net
Meets On: NS2B BBS, Penfield, New York
Net Control: Bob Smith, NS2B
Alternate Net Control/Scribe: Daryl Stout, WX4QZ
Net Time: 8pm Eastern, 7pm Central, 6pm Mountain, 5pm Pacific
Comments: The PCL Net, which stands for "Patience And Chicken Lips",
originally began on the N0KFQ BBS in Branson, Missouri in the early
1980's. Run by Sysop K.O. Higgs, N0KFQ, with his wife, Billie, KB0WSA,
as Net Control, it was a full featured packet BBS, with RF and telnet
access. After Billie's death a few years ago (K.O. died 2 years after
she did), Bob, NS2B, moved the Net to his system, in Penfield, New York.
The main requirement to checkin is being a licensed amateur radio operator, with privileges to transmit on packet, either VHF, HF, or Telnet. If you
can't make the net, and you would like a courtesy checkin, please email:
1) Bob Smith, NS2B, at firstname.lastname@example.org
2) Daryl Stout, WX4QZ, at email@example.com
The net is in a roundtable format, with everyone typing data at their
keyboard. Further details on the net are in the file PCL_NET.PDF --
which is available at https://www.theweatherwonder.com/elk.htm
on The Thunderbolt BBS in the Ham Radio Files area. You will need an appropriate PDF viewer to view/print the file.
Net Name: Hotspots, Raspberry Pi, Single Board Computer, and Zoom Net
Meets On: The QuadNet Array
Net Controls: Daryl Stout, WX4QZ, and Steve Reiners, KC9SIO
Net Time: 10pm Eastern, 9pm Central, 8pm Mountain, 7pm Pacific
Comments: With the items noted in the net title being common in the
shack with digital modes, this is designed as a Q&A Net, with checkins afterwards.
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 Facebook Page.
5) Via email to either firstname.lastname@example.org
Checkin methods 3, 4, and 5, will automatically be noted as "short time".
Net Control Duties between WX4QZ and KC9SIO are switched weekly.
