New 6m Net - Wednesday - 7:30 PM - 52.525 MHz FM

Thanks to Barry W9FFL, Yaron K6YOP, Dave WB6KHP and Jon KI6RT, there is a new weekly 6m FM net.  Most modern HF radios have 6 meter capability and as summer approaches, and the 6m propagation starts to heat up, it’s time to start using it !  The 6m band is similar to 2m for most of the time as a line-of-sight VHF band.  However, from time time there will be DX openings due to sporadic E layer propagation.  Get your station set up and join the fun on the weekly 6m net.
