Beginning on Friday, April 14th at 12 noon EDT, or 1600 Z, a new net
will be hitting the air waves on the W8IRA Independent Repeater
Association Link system. It will be called the IRA Link System
Michigan Noon-time Roundup Net.
The net will be held on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday each week, with
the possibility of expanding to a five-day schedule if interest and
participation are sufficient. So, find a link near you, and please
The purpose of the net is to promote activity on the IRA Link System,
and also to help identify and trouble-shoot any problems that might be
occurring with system repeaters.
The net also will be a great way for Michigan hams to communicate with
each other during the mid-day hours while mobile, or just looking for
conversations with fellow hams.
If you have any questions, or would like more information, please
contact Tom Behler: KB8TYJ, the Net Manager. He can be reached at:
