W4PL Linking Schedule

Our Next Meeting.
Due to scheduling issues, our next meeting will be:

  • Date/Time: Saturday, November 9, Noon to 2 PM
  • Wally’s Restaurant, East Ridge, TN (Exit 1 on Interstate 75).

This meeting will be a “program your radio meeting” to help those that purchased D-STAR radios after Hamfest Chattanooga 2019 and to prepare for those that plan to tell Santa to bring them one at Christmas. So bring your radio, cables, power supply (if needed), and we’ll do our best to get your radio programmed or to help you understand how to do it yourself.

We are pleased to announce the revised Linking Schedule for W4PL.

  • Module B:  Will continue its normal schedule of 24×7 linking to Reflector 030C.
  • Module C:
    – From 4 AM until 8 PM, seven days a week, Module C will be linked to the Chattanooga Reflector 77.- On Sundays, from 8:50 PM to 10:15 PM, Module C will be linked to Reflector 002A for the SE Regional Weather Net.  At 10:15 PM, Module C will automatically revert to an unlinked condition; however, it is programmed to not unlink if there is an active QSO in progress so the10:15 PM unlink time may flex a bit to accommodate active QSO’s.

Please note that you may unlink either module from its normal, non-net schedule if desired. When your QSO is complete, please relink to its normal linked condition.

Note:  We do NOT encourage unlinking a module which has been linked to a scheduled net.

We encourage you to use Module C while it is connected to Reflector 077 and get into the habit of using it. It’s a good place to meet new ham friends and build relationships that will help in times of trouble.  Please remember that “networks” are not just about computers & the Internet but the friendships we make and support we give when things go bad.
