Any interest in a Flex Users Digital Modes Net ? Perhaps weekly, on 60M? to "talk" (phone) and test Flex radios and software with digital modes? 60M allows digital operations on the same channel as a SSB phone "QSO".  So the people that check in can talk about use of digital modes with a Flex transceiver and also test out ideas immediately by switching to use of digital modes on the same frequency during the net.  Discussion could include various digital mode software and how they interface with PowerSDR and SmartSDR.  Andy K3UK

Hi Andrew,  There probably will be some interest but let me be the first to say that establishing a NET of any kind on the limited /channelized 60M band may not be a good idea at this time.

I understand the rules for 60M, but I'm not convinced that a net operation is outside the scope and limitations of the USA rules. There are many "round tables" on 60M where they keep things moving and allow sufficient pauses in between transmissions .
