Get On The Air Meeting (GOTAM) Saturday March 14
We will gather on the air Saturday morning with a Get On The Air Meeting or “GOTAM” in lieu of our regular meeting, We will begin at about 9:15 AM.
Here’s how we’ll do it. There will be 2 bands used, 75 meters and 2 meters. Those with capabilities to get on 75 meters, we’ll meet at 3.856 +/- QRM. If you can’t get on HF in general, or 75-meters due to antenna issues, we will be in the SARA repeater at 147.060 +Offset 026 Normal DCS/DCTS.
Your hosts/facilitators will be Jim WØELC on 75 meters and Joe KCØOIO on the SARA repeater. Between the two of us, we’ll cross band simulcast as much as we can so that all can hear the full gathering. We’ll have a couple of topics for discussion during the course of the gathering to keep things interesting.
For those of you out of town members or those not able to transmit on 75 meters or 2 meters, there are options to join us. You can listen in via a webSDR, on your local SDR receiver, or you can listen but not transmit from your location. Send KC0OIO an email ( kc0oio at radioham.org, replace the ” at ” with @ when sending ) that you’re listening and we will check you in.
I can’t think of a better way of proving the social contact aspect of Amateur Radio at cautious times like this than getting on the air to gather when we can’t gather in person.
Fire up your radio and join SARA for the Get On The Air Meeting!
