To volunteer to be net control contact Art, W7AUF.
Always looking for volunteers from the club. I can email you all the information you need. Don't want to run the net from your home station? Be my guest and run the net from my station. I will log for you or help you get started. We have a fantastic club and it is a privilege to be net control.
Hello Everybody. I tried checking into the net last night but nobody seemed to be able to hear me clearly. I could hear everybody else quite clearly. I have the offset and tone set correctly (I triple-checked). Could it be due to my location that I'm not able to get out clearly? I'm using a Baofeng 8w hand held attached to a car antenna for checking into nets. We also live out in a hilly and wooded area surrounded by forest. Ours is a log home with a metal roof. Could this be the cause, or is my radio just not able to reach out and hit the repeater too well?
This is all very new to me; I just got my call sign at the beginning of the week. I was thinking that next week maybe I should put the whip antenna on and try transmitting from outside on the porch or a clear area?
Thanks for any help
