Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone know if RSARS still run a net on the 40 meter band (7 Mhz) and what days?
     
  2. panda,

    See RSARS NETS AND FREQUENCIES for a few options:

    7.1 70 MHz.

    Almost daily SSB MORNING Nets which take place starting at 1000 UK local time - on Monday the Net Controller position is GM4FOZ to kick-off the week and this is followed on Tuesday under the baton of G4OHX then Thursday and Friday (same time, same place) with GM4FOZ again at the helm.



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    7.070 MHz or 7.170 MHz.

    The weekly SSB 40m AFTERNOON Net controlled by MØOIC on Tuesdays at 1400 UK local time was suffering badly due to prevailing conditions Winter 2007/Spring 2008 so at that time the Net (and the Thursday afternoon one) moved to 3.743MHz +/- QRM - for details now see under 80m - the Net Controller continues to be MØOIC but since Spring of 2010 with increasingly more favourable conditions it has come back to 40m again.

    7.070 MHz or 7.170 MHz.

    The weekly SSB 40m AFTERNOON Net which took place on Thursdays at 1400 UK local time was suffering badly due to prevailing conditions Winter 2007/Spring 2008 so at that time the Net (as in the case of the Tuesday afternoon one) moved to 3.743MHz +/- QRM and GØRGB picked up the reins. But since Spring of 2010 with increasingly more favourable conditions it has come back to 40m again.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    7.070 and 7170 MHz (and 3.743 MHz)

    Taking place on each Sunday from 30 November 1986 (originally on 80m but from the Spring of 2001 it moved to 40m until the Spring of 2006 when we started the Net on 40m but so often found it untenable that we migrated to 80m again) the CHATTERBOX Net runs from 1100 to Noon local time if possible and is controlled by Dick (G3NVK) aided by stalwart deputy Dennis (GW4XKE).
    The Net is for the exchange of Society and membership news and information and general membership discussion: this Net is NOT used for RSARS Award purposes but if a rare station does come up "the Rules" can be relaxed as an exception, the main Net closed, and the frequency left for contacts with that station to benefit the Awards Scheme.
    We currently trial 7070 and 7.170 between 10:30 and 11:00 clock time and if conditions permit we continue, but if propagation is so bad (and it has been now for a very long time) then the Pre-Chatterbox Net (conducted by GW4XKE) takes place on 3.743 MHz until 11:00 when CHATTERBOX proper under the baton of G3NVK begins and goes on until Noon.
    Our 1000th Net was held on 16th September 2007.
     
  3. Thanks for that, somehow missed that listing on the website, hopefully all things going well this weekend I should be a new M6 by this time next week :D
