The test net on Sunday was, in my humble opinion, very successful. You had very short notice – about a day. Conditions were rough, people were fading in and out. Even still, we were able to log more check-ins than we did during the previous net on 40 meters. Perhaps next time the propagation gods will bless us with better conditions. We even had a couple of guys who had never even heard of Hamesexy and hopefully they have checked out the web site since then.
Broadcasters (some of them seasonal) are kicking our *hams* on 40 meters in the evening hours. Therefore, the hamsexy.com HF net will NOT be held tonight. We will hold the net again on Sunday, Nov. 20 at 1800 UTC (1 pm Eastern, 10 am Pacific) on 14.320 MHz (+/- 10 kHz – if there is a QSO or someone calling “CQ contest…. CQ contest” on that frequency). If there is too much interference due to the ARRL contest this weekend, we may just move over to 17 meters so keep an eye on this page in case we have to make last-minute changes.
I am only one station, and as your humble net control, I cannot do this all on my own. My signal will never reach everyone, everywhere. I’m not running legal limit here. If you and I have a good signal path (you know who you are) you may be asked to relay and take check-ins. If you cannot hear me, but you hear others, please ask for someone to relay for you. This is a team effort, and so far, the HF net is off to a very good start after only 2 runs.
So there you go. Unless you don’t yet have HF, for lack of a better phrase…. BE THERE!
