New APRS Beacon

August 13, 2009

ntsredIf you are in the area of Ontario thats between Toronto and Bowmanville and are looking on you might notice 3 new Beacons on your screen.

They have the NTS icon and the TFC-AJAX, TFC-PICKR and TFC-OSHAW which could lead you to believe that the Ontario Phone Net is holding traffic for this area of Ontario.

If you are in this area please check into the Net (1900HRS EASTERNĀ  on 3.742 and help out your fellow amateurs by picking up the traffic for that area.


Please support the people who are out there supporting you!
