CW Practice - HundredWeight Net 

For those who would like to work on Morse Code (aka CW) with a group of friends, we invite you to the code practice net Sundays at 4:30 pm on 146.550 simplex. This will be a combination voice/code net using regular FM phone mode. You're welcome to listen, ask questions, or send and receive code with us. If you want to send code, you'll need a key and some type of code practice oscillator. This could be the side-tone on another transceiver, a computer or smart-phone app, or a regular code oscillator or sounder. All you need to do is hold your mic/handheld near the source of the code sound and send your code while you transmit. Whether you've never learned code, or want to improve your code skills, please join us. Listen for "CQ CQ CPN" in code, and a voice announcement of the net as well, and check in when invited to do so. We look forward to hearing from you! For more information, contact Kevin, N7GES, 970-481-3264.

6-Meter Operations

Gary KE0AAZ and Greg AD0JP, are interested in getting some activity going on 6 meters.  Right now they both have vertically polarized omnidirectional antennas up, and are primarily working and monitoring on 52.525 MHz FM.  If sufficient interest and activity happens it could evolve into SSB on a different frequency and/or horizontal antennas.  Greg can be contacted for signal reports, antenna questions etc at gregella53@gmail.com

Ham antenna restrictions eased!!!!

Senate Bill 15-041to protect our ability to put an antenna on our houses and exempt it from unreasonable restrictions from state and local regulations has been passed by both the houses in Colorado.  It was signed by the governor on March 13, 2015.  Check out the picture.  

 

There is also a federal bill, HR1301, that would apply the same protections to HOAs as well. (This bill was formerly known as HR4969)

Club Net

The club holds a net each Wednesday at 7 pm on the 447.275 repeater (100 Hz tone).  This net starts as a formal net with check-ins and an opportunity to ask questions of the board and members.  Then switches to an informal net where participants can chat about anything on their mind.
