Colorado Air National Guard Flyover Wednesday, May 6

The Colorado ANG will be flying F-16 Falcons over various Colorado cities and towns on Wednesday, May 5th from 4:30pm to 6:00pm to salute those fighting on the front lines against COVID-19.

For details, see the CNG web page at: https://co.ng.mil/News/Archives/Article/2175534/colorado-air-national-guard-flyovers-to-salute-colorado-heroes/ (see the "Related Documents" link on the lower right for detailed times and flyover locations.  See attachment to this article for flight plan.

If you have an AM-capable receiver, you might try to listen in on their transmissions.  I've not seen the exact frequencies listed, unfortunately, but during the recent Thunderbird flyover, there was discussion on the RMHAM and Colorado Connection repeaters giving out the frequencies, so that might be a good place to look (or listen).

Please feel free to add comments with frequencies if you are aware of them!

New 6 Meter Group forming

 

Item of interest for our club. Please read the email below I received on a new group for 6 meters!!!

I would like to share with the LARC club a new Groups.io forum that Paul NO0T and I have started that focuses on 6 Meter operation.  With the upcoming Sporadic E season, there should be a lot of fun on the band this summer.
 

The group is located at https://groups.io/g/FrontRange6Meter and membership is open to anyone who is interested.  While it includes an email reflector, we expect it to be much more…   your one stop for learning about 6 Meter operations and connecting with like minded hams in the area. 

We opened the site on Monday, and sent out a blast email to folks in the area that we have worked on 6 meters.  We already have 55 members and growing…  with 55 messages reflected back to the group.

Please share this information on the bulletin board, nets, monthly newsletter, etc.
