    Arizona 4x4 Ham Net

    Announcing the return of the 4x4 Ham net in 2017!

    What: Arizona 4x4 Ham Net

    When: 2nd Wednesday of each month at 8:30pm MST (Thursday 3:30am UTC)
    January 11th
    February 8th
    March 8th
    April 12th
    May 10th
    June 14th
    July 12th
    August 9th
    September 13th
    October 11th
    November 8th
    December 13th
    Where: ARA Metrolink repeaters
    Shaw Butte 147.24+ (162.2)
    Mt. Ord 146.92- (162.2)
    Scottsdale Airpark 146.76- (162.2)
    Usery Pass 146.86- (162.2)
    Mingus Mtn. 146.82- (162.2)
    Daisy Mtn. FD 448.375- (100.0)

    It's time to try to reboot the net. Let's do it once a month instead of weekly. I'm changing the start time to 8:30pm from the old 8:15pm to give us a few more minutes padding between the SkyWarn net at 8pm. The net will be the Arizona 4x4 Ham Net. The net template will be published for other regions to start their own net, if desired. We'll also try to host occasional IRLP/Echolink or HF nets.

    Your best bet is probably Mt. Ord 146.92, but I don't think any of the repeaters will reach Sierra Vista.

    Is it too late to change it over to the Rimlink? I can't hit Mt Ord from my house.

    Maybe link in Mingus Mtn 146.820 to Metrolink. Or Mt Elden....or....or.....

    If only you knew someone at the ARA.

    is Shaw still set up so you can listen to it on the internet? If so, anyone in the world can listen to it. They wouldn't be able to check in, but at least could listen in. It used to be that those on the internet would come here and someone would be monitoring the chat for check ins. Did you remove that feature?

    Hello Virgil,

    Can we listen on the computer and I cannot find the chat room?

    I don't have a chat room installed anymore. I need to look at adding that back. There is normally streaming audio on Broadcastify.com, but I'm just getting dead air on it right now. http://www.broadcastify.com/listen/feed/9729 I've contacted the guy that provides the feed to see if he can fix it.

    Is the Mt Ord (146.92) machine working? I can usually hit it from Prescott Valley, but not this am.

    I should be there, as long as the transceiver cooperates... It's an '80s Yaesu Memorizer and sometimes it likes to stop transmitting without warning..

    I'm glad to see the net is back, I would like to see it back to 8:15 but, I understand why it moved. I get to check in but can't stay long enough to listen much because of work. I never heard why the net stop last year I thought participation was good.

    I was able to listen in on the net, but other activities kept me from checking in. I love it, hope it thrives!
