What's heppening around AARG?
Thursday nights are seeing more activity around here. Listen around 8 PM for the EPA AA3RG and Echolink Traffic Net or EAETN for short. This net operates as a formal ARRL NTS traffic net at the Section level, with Scott, N3SW as net control. Since there wasn't enough time for training, tune in starting at 7:45 PM, and just prior to EAETN, when Scott providies message handing training using an approved course. Please join them.
We also welcome you to check in to our weekly information net, held at 8 pm every Sunday night. Both nets will utilize our 146.640- MHz. tone 82.5 Hz. AA3RG Repeater.
We invite you to join us, at our informal breakfast gathering held on the second Saturday of the month, 8 AM, at The Farmers Wife Restaurant, along Route 22 in Ono. Or at our business meetings held the second Monday of the month, 7 PM, at Heisey's Dinner, on Route 72 north of Lebanon.
For those of you that are, or have been a member of AARG, I'm sure you have some pictures floating around the shack somewhere. If you do, we would like to chat with you.
Why you may ask? The short story is that we are looking to share them on this site. If you have pics to share, drop an email to info at aa3rg dot org and someone will contact you. If you can't scan them, I'm sure we can make some kind of arrangements to borrow them long enough to make a copy.
Wanted: A few good OP's!
Ever thought about being Net Control? It's really not as tough as it seems. Not just that we provide you with everything you need. The only way to find out if you have what it takes is to try. Interested? Contact: info at aa3rg dot org
What would you do?
In todays age, are we allowing opportunities to just pass us by? Sometimes we become complacent in the fact that what we have works. Fantastic! for technology that in some cases is over a quarter century old. Not that today's technology is any better, or worse, it's just different.
Lucky for us, in some cases what other services throw away, we can recommission. One of the most over looked resources today is the common wireless device, yes routers, or add on cards. It can be somewhat hardware dependant, but the used market looks pretty good too.
Lets face it, a lot of communications systems today leverage the use of the Internet Protocols. We reaped the benefits before the Internet became fashionable, and even more so today. However the real concern is what happens when the Internet is knocked out.
