New 160M Net

Oregon ARES District 5 has announced plans to host an every-Sunday evening 160 Meter on 1978 KHz starting at 5:30 PM local time. Dan Bissell W7WVF will serve as the Net Control Station. All Oregon Section ARES members are invited to check in and test their equipment. A log of stations that have checked in will be sent to the SEC to improve our understanding of “top band” capabilities throughout the section. We hope you can join us!
