The club hosts a weekly Sunday night NTMS NET at 8PM local DFW time on 144.260 MHz. Since the ARRL suggests this frequency as a US coordination frequency during contest events such as the ARRL 10 GHz and above contest, it makes sense to use this frequency for daily microwave related chit chat, sked coordination, NET operation and our operating events.
Thanks to K5ZSJ, N5PGH, and W5RLG for running the NTMS NET for the last several years.
Please aim your antennas towards the Plano, Texas EM13 area on Sunday nights.
