So the only FLEX users net is on Sundays or is there another one???  I'm thinking we need to set another net up if thats the only one.. chat, exchange idea's, setups, help, test, tweek, etc....

Anyone up for another net at another time??

    I'm open to another also I'd like to know about Sunday as well. I'm open to creating a few other Flex Nets too. Make it so!

    A previous post states

      "20 meters 14.329 on Sunday at 1 pm central time"

    Which is my recollection

    How many would like to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon in their shack instead of with their family and friends outside on a picnic, beach, trail run, biking, golfing, hiking, fishing.........
    Would anyone consider an evening during the week?      73, Jim

    Let me think about that difficult question for a bit.

    We have tried evening nets on 40 and 80m before.  They did not get a lot of traction, but I think the idea has a lot of merit and should be explored.

    The Sunday time is kind of iffy for me but I will try and check in when possible. My hunch is that the more Flex sells radios the faster an evening net could get good traction. 

    I have started using Net Logger some recently. Does someone know the steps to take to get a new Net displayed on that system? I have found the AIM (almost instant message) function along with the other window that shows who has already checked in along with those "Lurking" and might be ready to take a call... useful.

    I also enjoy having the call signs names and States up on a screen so I can have a beam pointed in the right direction and most of the info for a contact logged into N1MM before I key the mic. I don't multitask as well as some (grin)

    I am a new flex user and wondering if in fact there really is a Flex net on 20 meters?

    I will have a listen this Sunday night a 7 PM MST or 1900 Zulu------ Seems a bit late in the day for 20 meters.

    Cheers

    Hi Larry, there has been a flex net on Sunday. It seems they were having problems finding a net control. I ran the net once but I am usually in church
    when the net takes place. I'm not sure what the answer may be. I would take 
    a turn at net control however, using the present net time, I'm unavailable. I will continue checking on here in case times change.

    I checked in but band conditions were short and poor. Barely heard Dudley and nothing from west coast.

    I think the meter ran out - "Need to deposit 25 cents for the next four months!"

    Yeah, a goodly portion of us are electrical/electronic geeks. We're fortunate if we have adequate social skills to navigate the basics of life, much less significant others or matching socks.

    Also, you ever try a pleasant sunny afternoon in Dixie this time of year?? You might as well be in close solar orbit when the big shiny thingy goes nova.

    I started a list of western USA Flexer's who would like a net on 40 or 80

    With a growing Flex community and the HF Bands in a slump it might be time to look at a World Wide Net on one of the many internet connected digital modes. DMR or DStar to name just two.

    I like DSTAR but I'd rather be on a Flex net with my Flex. Maybe a 40m or 75m evening net would do better?
