RCARA 6 Meter Chat

Join us Mondays and Tuesdays for a 6 Meter Chat on 50.500 MHz FM.

The Monday 6 Meter Net begins after the 2 Meter Public Service Net on W6TJ.

The Tuesday 6 Meter Net begin at 7:00PM PST on 50.500 MHz FM.

Assisting in this chat is a remote receiver placed on Sierra Peak in Corona. The receiver was placed there to foster conversation primarily on the Six Meter AM Roundtable hosted by Will AA6DD, which happens every Sunday at 10:00 AM, on 50.400AM.

The receiver and its functionality are accessible to anyone who has the software and a little bit of time. AA6RF described the steps:

Here’s what you need to do to get on the 6 Meter Sierra Peak remote.

You need a Windows or Android computer. Log into remotehams.com, RemoteHams.com – Home It is free to create an account there if necessary.

Then download rcforbclient setup RemoteHams.com – Downloads. After that open up app and there are many remotes to log into. You want to log into W6RYO Sierra Peak.

It’s that easy.

RCARA 10 Meter Net

Technician, General, Advanced and Extra Class License Holders

Please join us on Thursday nights at 7:00 PM PST on 28.328 MHz USB for a 10 meter Round-Table Net.  If the frequency is in use the alternate is 28.420 MHz USB.  Antenna polarization: Vertical.

The purpose of the 10 meter Net is to develop and improve our skills in bands of radio communications that are available but unfamiliar to many club members.  Adding in some friendly chat and signal reports is a great side benefit!

Technician Class license holders have Voice (Phone) privilege on 10 Meters between 28.300 Mhz and 28.500 Mhz.

General and Extra Class license holders have Voice (Phone) privilege on 10 Meters between 28.300 Mhz and 29.700 Mhz meaning all licensed operators can participate.  

Due to the current sunspot activity limiting 10 Meter propagation, our anticipated RCARA Net coverage area is the Riverside and immediately surrounding communities.  We are happy to welcome guests – Local and DX.

Anyone interested in taking a turn as Net Control Station, please contact AJ6PH (Juan).

 

Many Thanks & 73!

Juan – AJ6PH

W6TJ 2 Meter Net

The Riverside County Amateur Radio Association provides communications support during many Public Service Events throughout the year. A weekly net is held to foster emergency preparedness every Monday evening at 7:00 PM. The Monday night net provides bulletins of upcoming club activities and events.

For the first three Mondays of the month, we host the Net on the W6TJ club repeater. It is also possible to check into the net via the W6CDF repeater located on Box Springs Mountain which is linked to the W6TJ repeater.

The fourth Monday of the month is a SIMPLEX net on 146.880 MHz, no offset, no PL, no squelch. This is done as practice for emergency preparedness as an exercise in being able to operate in a power outage WITHOUT the repeater.
