Tuesday Night APRN net

The American Preppers Radio Net takes to the air tonight at 2359Z (UTC)
Lee K4USS has informed us that the net tonight will be on the 80 meter band at 3.961 for the first part of the net. Lee has been very busy installing new antennas for the 40 meter band and will move the net to the 40 meter band immediately after closing the 80 meter net.  The 40 meter move will go to 7.198 as soon as we wrap up the 80 meter net.

A lot of people liked the 40 meter net but it has been very unkind to us recently so with a little luck and some people to make the move just maybe we can get that band to work for us again. Everyone that can do 40 meter please come join the net tonight and help us out with this test run to see if all the antenna work Lee has done pays off.

The topic for tonight will be How to Survive an Economic Meltdown.


  1. I plan on being there on 40 tonight.


  2. I tried to check in right at the end of the net.

  3. joe, if you don't have NetLogger on your computer, you can download it following the link here on the left side. When you get it installed, cllick the Monitor Online Nets button at the top right, and if Net Control (or someone) has started it, you can monitor the net and use the almost instant message feature. We use it to tell people that you are trying to check in, whether or not we have good signals, etc. Also, they'll post any freq changes there so you can follow and keep up with the net.

    Sorry I missed the net(s). I had a mini-crisis of my own. Driving home from work Monday evening, my rear brake line ruptured. I thought it was the one to the left wheel cylinder, so I bought a 30" piece of brake line and got home and replaced it. Nope... It was the main steel line running from the ABS module to the rear "T". So yesterday, after working until 6 pm, I head home with 10' of steel line. Of course, that wasn't long enough so I had to go back and get a 20" piece. Got it all hooked up and then had to bleed the brakes. Anyway, it's all finished and working, but I decided I had better attend to that than try to get onto the net.
