There are 3 nets that happen on a regular basis on VE3RMI; 10:00am Sunday mornings, 6:30pm Wednesday (YL Net) and 7:30pm on Thursday evenings. You do NOT need to be a member of the club to check in, nor do you need to be a YL to give Lou a check in on Wednesday evening. We also have a meeting on the air 3 times weekly, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10:00am, affectionately known as 'the hams of the round table'. It used to be every morning at 10 when the global COVID-19 pandemic hit in 2020 as a means to check on the well-being of our club members. As things slowly get/got back to normal, we cut it back to 3 times weekly. We look forward to being able to write you down! 73 de VE3WVA Rusty PS - thank you Denis VE3OOZ for pointing out after all these years, we never had net times posted on the website :-0
