LARC - Ham Net Challenge

Are you up to it? I have a challenge for you. 


Below you will see a list with all the nets I was able to find on the web. 
I would like for you to help update, maybe attend one or many of these nets to see what they are like. 
 
 
The Goal: 
To create the best list of nets for the state of Colorado!!! Then I will post it on the w0eno.org website. 
 
For any corrections or additions please send the information to me. K0ITP@w0eno.org
 
I'm giving it 2-3 weeks to get this list as detailed as we can so we can publish it to the w0eno.org website. If you can reach nets in Wyoming add them as well. 
 
Thank you all for your help and support in this effort.
 
So get on the air and start enjoying the nets Colorado has to offer!
 
Current List:  (Updates as I get them) Download here

RMHAM - Radio Programming with Chirp

Next TUESDAY, Jan. 19th, at 7:30pm Chris K0SWE is giving an RMHAM Tech Talk on Radio programming with CHIRP.CHIRP is an open source program for programming radios from most manufacturers. The talk will cover setting channels as well as other radio properties using Baofeng, Kenwood and Yaesu radios as examples.

This could be a good way of making sure your radio has not only your local ARES group's channels programmed, but also neighboring districts which you may need to interoperate with.

To get the Zoom key and and password please sign up for the class at

https://www.rmham.org/cgi-bin/rmham-u/signup

As always these talks are free and will be available on the RMHAM web site rmham.org afterwards.
