North America Rag Chew Net



The HamSphere North American Rag Chew Net continues to meet twice a week, on Wednesday and Saturday at 01:00 UTC.
For the Summer Period it was decided we would have the check in and rag chew portion of the net on 2 Meters at 145.300. The Net Controllers for July are 9HS4755 Wayne on Wednesday session and VA7FT Tim on the Saturday session with 2HS1189 Rik as our Net Logger.

The reason assigned for the move to 2 Meters were the very poor conditions on 40 meters, our regular meeting place, and the fact that our west coast stations were still in full daylight well into the net. This move has been accepted and we have been averaging 14 check in per session.

August NA1NA Dan will assume the duties as Net Control on the Saturday session.
Since the last news letter the Rag Chew net has coverd many subjects from helping a new operator work out what plug ins and antennas he or she should purchase through to how to fill out and send a QSL card. We have also had a number of very interesting trivia questions supplied by our operators that have checked in.

We actively encourge new operators and experienced operators to ask questions for our net is designed to assist and educate our friends in HamSphere and to assist them to enjoy the platform more.
In the September/October time frame we will return to the 40 Meter Check in on 07.030 and the Rag Chew Portion on the 2 Meter band at 145.300.

Should you have any questions about the net or suggestions to imporve the net we would like to hear from you.

HamSphere 80 meter award net

The HamSphere 80 Meter Award Net was formed with the express purpose of helping operators old and new alike achieve their 80 meter award. In my opinion I feel that the 80 meter award could be the fastest award to obtain in the sense that you only need 25 states on the 80 meter band to get it. Yes, not all the states are around all the time and for some states it might be hit or miss if you can catch them anywhere, but now with this new net forming we may be able to bridge that gap and get the award much quicker.

There is something about winning awards that makes an operator feel good and have a sense of accomplishment. We not only want to help those achieve an award but make them feel like they are a part of something special at the same time.

There is no magical time to make sure we accommodate both the east and west coast and all be happy, so with that said we will have the net on frequency 3.750 on Thursdays, Sundays, and Mondays at 02:00 UTC.
