Friday Evening SIARA VHF Net and Virtual Meeting – 146.640 Repeater @ 8pm 3/20/2020

In an effort to continue on a normal, I will be holding a Monthly VHF SIARA meeting net on the 146.640 repeater.  This is will allow us to do a face to face meeting, and get on the radio at the same time.  But, here is the catch.  This will be accomplished by using Zoom for VIDEO ONLY, and the audio channel will be ON THE REPEATER.  Let’s try this for fun at first.  If it doesn’t work, then we will just do a over the air meeting.

Here is the agenda:

  • 7:30pm: Virtual “Zoom Room” will open early for virtual check-ins.
  • 8:00pm: (146.640 repeater) SIARA will set the tones for Net mode
    • NCO: Matt Bonadies KB9YOJ
    • Backup NCO: (Need Volunteer) or Chris Eller N9FRS?
  • 8:00 – 8:15:  Check in period
  • 8:15 – 8:30:  Meeting Business
  • 8:30 – ???:  General Discussion and Comments period in a controlled net fashion

I have no problem running the net.  If there is some sort of weather emergency, we will stop the meeting and allow ARES to take control of the frequency. 

Here is the link to the Zoom meeting.  If you don’t have Zoom, please follow the instructions in the link provided to install the App.  Everything is mostly automatic.
