SO FL NBEMS NET CHANGE
Monday 7.30pm 145.29
The South East FL NBEMS Net has been changed from Wednesdays at 8.00pm to Mondays at 7.30pm directly after the Voice Com Net. At 7.30pm is also the DMR BrainWaves NotAtNet. Both of these are very targeted audiences and should rarely conflict.

If a station needs to check their DMR radio on air, the BrainWaves net was designed for that purpose. If a station wants to be involved with digital traffic, then the So FL NBEMS Net fits that need.

FMI - Monday 7.00pm VoiceCom Net

We look forward to a full year of many projects even with COVID-19. Member tools are periodically undergoing updates.  The Shack is reopening for limited use starting June 5. See the link under Announcements.
 
Thank you for your support which is vital to our success.

How can you tell if you have not paid your 2021 dues? There are two ways.

1. No logon permitted if Admin Year was 2020 or earlier.

2. On home page see message "2021 dues payable by 2021-03-31."

In either case, to resolve this, please visit our Payment Gateway to Pay 2021 Dues.
