10m beacon and nets

Thanks to Rod VE3SOY the 10 metre CW beacon is back on the air. The frequency is 28.2653 MHz.

Bill VE3PA and Bert VE3NR have been conducting a rag-chew 10m net on Thursday nights at 7 PM local time on 28.730 MHz USB, and on Sunday morning, CW from 10:00 to 10:30 then USB phone. Check in any time and say hello.

Update: the beacon is currently off the air for repairs.

Test Your Radio Out

- Amateur Radio stations anywhere in the Greater Toronto Area are invited to check into the evening nets of the Toronto ARES Group.

By participating in any of these nets you are putting your radio on the air and ensuring that it is working properly.

You are also informing all the other Amateur Radio Operators in Toronto that you are on the map. That you exist.

Being an Amateur Radio Operator means you talk on a radio with other Amateur Radio Operators.
Checking into the ARES Nets is your best easy way to do that on VHF and UHF.
