Special Boondocks Net

To all amateur radio operators in Districts 3 and 4 in the Maine section (Aroostook, Waldo, Hancock, Washington, Penobscot, Piscataquis, Knox, and Somerset counties):

You are invited to check into a special “one-time” 75 meter net we are dubbing The Boondocks, since most of us are out here in the Boonies. The net will be on Sunday, January 9 at 1600 (4PM) on or near 3.840 MHz LSB.

This net is an opportunity for hams in these counties to meet each other on the air, test the RF pathways between each other, and to discuss the possibility of scheduling another on-air activity using a different band or mode in the future. All are welcome, and especially those from the listed counties.

Please spread the word. Phil Duggan, N1EP, will serve as net control from his QTH is Milbridge in Washington County. Let’s get radioActive and have some fun on the bands!
