Meeting On The Air – First Monday
We hold a Meeting on the Air – “MOTA”, using the Klub’s main two-meter repeater (147.120 MHz / 110.9 PL), on the first Monday of each month starting at 7:30 P.M.
The Meeting on the Air provides members and guests, who may not be able to attend a regular meeting, a chance to chat with other RWK members and keep current on the Klub’s and other members’ activities. Each month is different. The number of members participating will vary as will the topics of the conversation.
If you are a new ham, why not join the meeting on the air and practice your operating techniques in a friendly, informal environment? You will soon learn how a “net” consisting of a group of operators keeps everyone ‘in the loop.’
Local VHF Nets
The Klub hosts several nets on our repeaters each week. Both Klub Members and non-members are free to participate.
Our Current Net Schedule:
RWK Wellness Net – Every Weds @6pm – 147.12 Repeater
Tune in every Wednesday at 6:00 PM to check in on the health of your fellow hams. Every week we check up on each other, see if anyone needs any help, and discuss changes in recommendations and policies in relation to the ongoing outbreak. This net usually lasts anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes.
RWK Beginners Net – First/Third Weds@8pm – 147.12 Repeater
The primary purpose of the RWK beginners net is to foster education and participation from new amateur radio operators with support from designated mentors.
ARRL Field Day / Winter Field Day
The Klub regularly participates in the ARRL Field Day and Winter Field Day activities, the flagship Emergency Preparedness exercise for Radio Amateurs.
