Youth Radio: Thinking Day on the Air / Girl Scouts


Dudley KD0NMD writes, "TDOTA: Thinking Day on the Air, will be held this year on the 16 & 17 Feb '19. TDOTA is the Girl Scout version of the Boy Scout Jamboree on the Air (JOTA). A contingent of operators will gather at Thanksgiving Lutheran Church on the 16th from 0800 to noon so that girls can have the opportunity to talk to other girls elsewhere. This is a prime opportunity for you to do some outreach and help a Girl Scout troop participate in the annual TDOTA. We will use local repeaters, HF, and other technology such as IRLP, DSTAR, Echolink, etc... If you can't get out of the house then listen for the scouts and have a chat with them.

 

Silent Key, Wil KC6X


It is with deep regret that we announce that the key of Wilford Wolfshohi KC6X went silent this January 2019. Wil was an active member of the Bellevue Amateur Radio Club and a friend to us all. We extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends.

    Local Amateur Radio NETs

    An amateur radio net is an "on radio" gathering of amateur radio operators. A net may be formal or informal. They reoccur at regular intervals on a schedule. A net control operator is the individual presiding over the net that directs whose turn in order may speak. A predetermined topic may be selected or there may be open discussion depending on the type of net. Some nets serve a specific practical purpose while others are merely social. Getting involved in a social net is a quick way to meet other hams and become familiar with the process of repeater or simplex operation.

  • List of EN21 Verified Area Nets (link)

    The Bellevue Amateur Radio Club official weekly net is the Bellevue Amateur Radio Club Protocol Net which takes place Mondays at 20:00 ( 8:00pm CST ). The Protocol Net gives all area amateur radio operators the opportunity to participate and share traffic and announcements. This is not a round table discussion net, it is a short net in which you check in and become informed of local radio related events.
