From Wayne Morris, KB5UQ:
The pilot Technical Net will be 25 July 2018, starting at 7:30PM on the Azle repeater – 147.160+/PL 110.9.
Wayne Morris, KB5UQ, will be Net Control.
This net is an on-air Elmer session to encourage moving to higher license classes and discuss technical ham topics of interest. This would also be a good time to discuss HF operation, as well as Morse code and other modes.
We will need weekly net control operators to help facilitate. This role could be anyone. This could also be training for net control and net participation as it will be less formal than other nets. We will need hams of all levels to answer questions from the participants.
Hopefully, we will have some General class operators and above that want to help.
Anyone interested in any aspect of the net is invited to join us on the pilot net. Further nets will depend on interest shown at the pilot net.
