Since MAARC members are no longer able to congregate at the Clubhouse on Wednesday mornings due to the COVID-19 restrictions, MAARC has establishment the MAARC Wednesday Morning Get-together Net. The concept of having such a net was expressed by Oscar, VE9OSK.
This is an informal net, and the main focus is on having amateurs checking in to fill the local amateur radio community on what they have been doing to cope and survive in these unusual times.
The inaugural net took place on Wednesday, the 8th of April and the first amateur to check into the net was Angus, VE9MCD. A total of 16 amateurs checked into the net and a good time was had by all. Net controller was JP, VE9BK.
The MAARC Wednesday Morning Get-together Net begins at 9am on the 147.345 Repeater. All amateur in the coverage area of the repeater is invited to join in the fun.
