Hi. I am wondering if there are any youth nets or roundtables on 40 meters. If so could you give me the time and frequency? If not, anybody feel like starting one? 14 here and using a dipole with 150 watts out, it gets ok coverage. 73 and thanks for any replies,
Tim

The problem with 40m is that there are so many other nets on the voice portion, and when you mix in the broadcast stations on top of that it is hard to establish a frequency there. 20m or 80m would problably be a better choice, but then you lose coverage. On 20m you would have to do the net mid-day to get US coverage, on 80m it would be late night and conditions vary. Email me ( www.qrz.com/N5EIL you'll find my email there. )

I would like to see a youth net get started. Awile back there was a small group that tried to get one started, but it was hard to get frequencies and good propagation. I have a 706MKIIG and can get ahold of a legal limit amp from my neighbor, but my current problem is my butternut HF-6V is in need of repair, but that would be easy enough, I just need to get the time to do it.

I would love to see some kind of youth net on the HF bands, I will be taking my code sunday (I hope) and it would be nice for when I get me a set-up to be able to talk to other youth people over the HF bands..

Good Luck OWO with the code. And I agree, being relatively young myself, a youth net would be a great idea. I think younger hams getting into the hobby while they are young will help to slow the decline of amatuer radio as a viable hobby.

Hi, You will have 1 check in. Hopeing that there is not much QRM. I will try to get a hold of KC0NPF and KC0PBY who hold General licenses. I hope that my little sig. with a 100 watts and a g5rv will hold up. Untill I can get my 80 meter loop up.  Steve/KD5OWO have you never thought of using a 40 meter dipole cut for 7.275 mhz? Just a thought.

Good job on the code. We've gotten the net planned up, and we meet the first time on July 10th, at 9pm eastern on 7.275 MHz +/- 10KHz depending on QRM. We're called the .275 youth group. Hope you guys can check in.
And also, I probably won't be able to make it as my radio is down. Just my luck, and my foolish fixing job.
73,

So far It looks like I am going to be the Net Control for the first net. So look for N5EIL out of Dallas, Texas. I will be running a butternut vertical, power level is not know right now, but will be over 100W.

I will post our exact frequency for that night on our message board an hour before the net

s7.invisionfree.com/275_Youth_Group/index.php

, but we will be in the 10Khz +/- 7.275Mhz . I will be warming up an hour before the net starts up to the net time, so look for me then.

I hope that it dries up enough this weekend to get my vertical antenna up.  I know it will be up by July 10th, and I plan on checking into the net.  It should be a great net.
