Great Lakes Marine Mobile Net this Weekend:

The GLMMNet will be at 08:30 am Eastern on 7.268 MHz LSB this coming weekend, including Monday morning.

This year we will have some exciting additional features to play with during the nets.
We are adding a brand new HF Remote server here in the shack.
Several other HF Remote servers are available to us around the Great Lakes this time around.
Note: At least a General Ham Radio licence is needed for this.

Also new is the use of the Echolink APP for Iphone and Android phones from your boat.
With this APP you will be able to contact the net control officers directly in their shacks on Echolink/IRLP.
The range for 3G and 4G on the Lakes is about 3 to 5 miles offshore by testing.
Note: At least a Technician Ham licence is needed for this.

The Skype APP for Iphone and Android will also come in handy this year.
You can contact KC9SGV Great Lakes Marine Mobile Net on Skype directly in the shack.
Note: No licence is needed for this.

You can also monitor the net on your smart phone with the free Scanner Radio APP. Look for Amateur Boaters. (Audio slightly delayed.)

The GLMMNet time will be at 08:30 Eastern on weekend mornings throughout the summer.

All information will be on our website at

Best 73,
Bernie DeKok
