New ROARS Sked on Tuesdays

NEW RAGCHEW(TUE)SDAY SKED

We would like to propose the following new sked to encourage more members to go on the air for a leisurely CW chat as we used to do during a slack watch at sea. This will provide an on air meeting place and time to connect with colleagues/ friends which we don’t have at the moment.

Please note that this is not a Net and there will be no Net Controller. However for the first few weeks there will be a couple of us waiting in the wings to help things along. As a matter of courtesy, QSOs should proceed at the speed of the slower operator. Once a QSO is established please QSY Up or down to make room for others to make a call.

SKED DETAILS

WHEN    Commencing Tuesday Sept. 6th and weekly thereafter from 1000 – 1100 Local time.

According to the latest membership list there are 245 members with Amateur Licences. Of these 222 have GB and EI call signs. While some of you may no longer be active we are sure there must be more than the 10 or so that join the weekly net. So Lads roll up your sleeves, dust down those keys and light up the airwaves with your CW QSOs!

We look forward to hearing you on the air.
