The Official All Call list 1-3-18
On Thursday 12-29-16 we did an “All Call Drill.” I We had 9 check-ins including me as net control. I will give thanks to AE0RF for helping me when it became alphabet soup. I kept saying Zulu instead of Zero, so Justin came to my aide. N0TNL was ready to relieve AE0RF. So I also want to give Matt a big thanks. This was our 2nd attempt of an “ALL CALL! or CLUB ROLE CALL!” on a net night. Our 1st attempt yield a little more results, but we did use 145.390 and 444.475 repeaters simultaneously and gave everyone a longer warning of the drill. I again I thank all that participated. I will also would like to add that I did get some additional emails of members that was not in range of the repeater. This drill or club exercise will be coming again in the new year with little to no warning in prep for a real call out of ham radio operator’s to be use as an immediate support group. If you want to be the net controller or roundtable person please let me know, and I still need a person for next week (1-5-16). Procedures are on this website.
Remember our Nets/Roundtables are always on 8pm CT every Thursday on 444.475 (+) Tone 118.8Hz. All CLUB NEWS and UPDATES will be at this time. (If You need help please contact us!)
ALL CLUB MEMBERS SHOULD ALWAYS MONITOR OUR REPEATERS WHENEVER POSSIBLE!!!
Another fun thing is Mnwis having a World Wide 24 hour New Year’s Party this Starts 4am local today (12-31-16) on 145.390 (-) Fusion Mode. (Note: If you busy light goes on with no sound you are not in Fusion mode.)

REMINDER… Our next meeting Jan 18 starting at 7pm.Richfield’s Community Center (7000 Nicollet Ave.) Elections and WFD Prep
In closing this is Your Club and Everyone has Equal Input and Rights. Ham Radio is bigger than anyone person to know it all, so don’t feel uncomfortable to ask for help. I have been around radio for 40+ years and I am still asking questions that was on my 1st test. (Example: I never done an “All Call” with 60+ people and started to stumble but as I stated above other members jumped in to help.)
