DX222 YL Net
As propagation is ever so slowly improving we thought it might be a good idea to re-instate the DX222 YL Net this year. It used to run on a Monday at 0530UTC on 14.222 MHz June, VK4SJ was one of our earlier net control people but is not able to be net control.
So, this is a plea for the YL HF operators amongst you, anywhere in the world, to have fun on the air. safe, Shirley VK5YL, ALARA NEWSLETTER January 2021 Issue No. 176
ANZA NET 14.183Mhz 0515 UTC Daily
Day is now held on Thursdays each week. Net controls are Lyn VK4SWE
when available and Shirley VK5YL and is usually followed by ROTA
(Recipes on the Air). These YLs (and OMs) would love to hear some new
voices. Join in
