OPN visits ARES

Just as a reminder to all Net Participants that the Ontario ARES operates a HF Net every Sunday on 40m at 1300 hrs Eastern time.  This works out quite well as most of us have been listening to the Ontario Swap Shop on 7.055 from 1200 to 1300 so your rig is warm and your antenna tuned…

As Net Manager of the OPN I would ask all NTS operators to take the time to check in to the ARES 40m net on 7.080 and when checking in mention that you are there representing the NTS and the Ontario Phone Net.

The 40m band is starting to behave and today I was able to check in with the Net Control Station in Sault Ste Marie using my FT817 QRP 5w radio and my Buddistick vertical antenna.

The above is what I was using but the picnic table was at a City Park and not at the ocean resort…

Perhaps once we start visiting their nets they might repay the favour and join us in the evenings…
