HF EDITION OF WCF SECTION ARES AND INFORMATION NET CHANGING FREQUENCIES

Starting on Saturday April 22, 2017, the WCF Section ARES and Information Net will move from 3913 KHz to 3940 KHz.  This move was approved at the WCF Section ARES Meeting on Saturday April 8, 2017.  The move has been necessitated due to extensive activity on 3910 and 3915 KHz which makes holding the net on 3913 KHz difficult on many occasions.  The net will start at 0830 or immediately following the Southern Florida ARES Net whichever is later.

Currently the following nets are scheduled on Saturday on 3940 KHz:  Florida Phone Traffic Net at 0655, the ARRL Information Net at 0730, and the Southern Florida ARES Net at 0800.  Following the Southern Florida ARES Net at 0830 will also make it a “one frequency stop” for all stations to check into all the above nets without changing frequencies as well.  The WCF Section ARES and Information Net on Monday evening at 1930 on the NI4CE Repeater System will continue as currently scheduled.

MUNICIPAL PARKS ON THE AIR START DELAYED UNTIL 1/01/18

Due to the time and logistics necessary to compile a complete list of the city, town, and county parks in the ARRL West Central Florida Section, the start of Municipal Parks On The Air (MPOTA) will be delayed until January 1, 2018.  This will also give more time for advertisement of the event to amateur radio operators both inside and outside the Section.

Municipal Parks On The Air is an operating event, where any and all city, town, and county parks in the ARRL West Central Florida Section will be eligible for activation in an event similar to ARRL National Parks On The Air in 2016.
