Net sends #helpwanted message #ARRL #hamradio

Quick reminder that the statewide APRS net is coming up this Saturday,
December 12th at 1 PM.  Net control will be KD5NJR.


We will be conducting the net from the TDRC presentation on APRS and
UZ7HO soundcard modem at the Broken Arrow Central Library at 300 W.
Broadway in Broken Arrow.  If you have never used APRS, this is an
excellent opportunity to see someone in person running a portable APRS
station and soundcard modem combination.  Scott will be more than happy
to answer any questions you may have.


To assist the net in having maximum coverage, we are asking for
"associate net control" stations in the following locations:


OKC Metro, within 30 miles of W5LHG IGATE.
Guymon, within 50 miles of KB5IIM-15 IGATE.
Enid, within 30 miles of  K0WHN IGATE.
Bartlesville, within 30 miles of KE9XB IGATE.
McAlester, within 30 miles of W5CUQ-10 IGATE (believe it is still an
IGATE).
Buffalo, within 50 miles of WL7II IGATE.
Altus, within 50 miles of N5VX-10 IGATE.


You main job will be sending out an APRS bulletin announcing the net
and directing check-ins to the KD5NJR net control station.  Not every
location is served by bi-directional I-gates, so this will be a way to
serve the outlying areas and insure the net control message is making
it to those areas.  If you are interested in being an associate net
control for one of these locations, please email me at ae5me at yahoo
dot com and I will provide you more details.
