FCC Fees

The FCC is looking for comments on the issue of imposing fees for changes to our license. This article below from the ARRL states the information you need to know regarding this. We could be changed an increased fee for changes to our licenses and for new operator licenses. The proposed fee increase is to $50 for a license instead of the $15. This is going to limit the number of people that want to get a license based on cost. Check out the article and make your voice heard.

Evening Net changes

Hello Everyone,
We have started something new and want to see how it plays out. The evening net, After Dinner Net, has been adjusted to a one night a week Net. It will be run on Wednesday nights for the foreseeable future.

Still keeping the same time and frequency. 145.170, which is back to where all our nets are being run. Thank you for understanding and we hope to hear you on the 145.170 at our 8 am First Cup Net Monday through Friday and at 7 pm for the After Dinner Net Wednesday nights only.

New updated scripts will be forthcoming for our website in the next week or so.
