WCF SECTION PRESS RELEASE #23-14
SPECIAL SESSIONS OF THE EAGLE NET PLANNED FOR CHRISTMAS EVE 2023 AND NEW YEARS EVE 2023.
On Sunday December 24, 2023 and Sunday December 31, 2023, Darrell Davis KT4WX our Assistant Section Manager – Technology and ARRL Technical Coordinator, will continue his annual tradition of being the Net Control for the Eagle Net on the Christmas Eve and New Years Eve editions of this net.
The Eagle Net is the NTS Traffic Net for the ARRL West Central Florida Section and normally meets daily at 2030 Eastern Time on the NI4CE Repeater System, 365 days a year. The only day(s) the Eagle Net is not held is if the NI4CE Repeater System is being used to support gathering of information for the National Weather Service office in Ruskin, in a tropical storm incident, hurricane incident, or other severe weather outbreak. For more information on the NI4CE Repeater System, including a list of repeater frequencies go to https://www.ni4ce.org.
On Christmas Eve, those who check in will be asked to share a favorite past Christmas experience, or a favorite Christmas present which they either gave or received. On New Years Eve those who check in will be asked to share a project and or resolution completed this year. Alternatively, those who check in could share a project and or resolution planned for the New Year. This will be the 6th year of this tradition, which Davis started in 2018.
