The Good News Net Returns to the Air!

We are pleased to announce that Betty Basinger’s Good News Net will be returning to the air this coming Monday evening, May 21st at 7:00 pm.  Since the 146.805 repeater is still off the air, the net will be conducted on the new repeater in Bourbon, Mo. This repeater is on 146.985 with a negative offset and also a 141.3 tone.  Please join us there on Monday evening and help welcome Betty back to the airwaves!

The Weather Net Might Be Activated Tonight, Please Participate If You Can

The National Weather Service has alerted us that they may want us to activate our Weather Net late tonight.  They are predicting that there is significant possibility that severe weather may transit our region and they would appreciate our input.  The Net will be called on the 440 machine and we will do our best to relay our observations to the NWS on 2 meters.


Please participate if you can, but also, please observe network protocols.


Most importantly, let’s all be safe!


Weather Net has been activated!

The National Weather Service has asked that the club activate the Sullivan Area Weather Net this evening with incoming potentially severe weather in the forecast for our area.  If you can, please stand by and be on the watch.  The Net has been activated on the 444.600 repeater.  The specifics for that machine are 444.600 + 5 Mhz with a 141.3 tone.  John McReynolds, KC0NRO is Net Control.  Please tune in and check in when John asks for more check ins.

Thank You to All That Checked Into the Good News Net This Week!

Tonight, our beloved member, Betty Basinger held her Good News Net from the American Legion Hall in Leasburg, MO.  She had a temporary station provided by AA0GB who did a fabulous job in setting it up!  Before I say anything else, I just want to thank everyone who helped in getting that set up and operational!


Betty, without a doubt, your net tonight was an unqualified success!  So many folks from all around the region checked in and I think that all of us here loved to hear that!


Your ministry is vital to us, Betty!  Thank you so much for what you do!
