Net Control 101 Class

Our very own Robert Webster (WR8RW), will be holding a class on how to be a net controller for the 146.61 nightly net, and generally for other nets, on March 25th from 9am to 1pm. The class is open to all amateur radio operators. We do ask that you sign up for this class, so that we know how many handouts to have on hand. You can sign up at the Net Control 101 Signup page. There is no cost for this class. Also, if you have a handheld, please bring it with you for a practice exercise.

Zane Grey was an author and master of the American western novel. An Ohio born dentist, Pearl Zane Grey spent many years under the Mogollon Rim writing “To The Last Man” and a dozen other Westerns with Arizona settings and characters. His prolific writings popularized the American cowboy as a taciturn, romantic figure.
