Dear Fellow Ham:
I am introducing you to a new area radio net starting on January 10, 2019 at 7:00 PM on 146.670 mHz (600kHz down, 110.9 PL). The AREC Repeater Group (arec67.org) President and Trustee have given their approval. I’m calling it the VOAD Net (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster). See https://www.nvoad.org
In VOAD there are many organizations, including ARES, that support recovery at times of disaster. The idea is to have a modified controlled net where individuals may share what’s new in their hobby, especially about EmComm. Perhaps we’ll talk about the VOAD organizations and describe their disaster work. My hope is to contact member organizations to educate them about our services and encourage individuals of their membership to become ham radio operators. All hams are welcome and encouraged to participate in this net.
