The Kings County Radio Club is an organization dedicated to the art and science of radio communications. We help to educate those individuals interested in learning about Amateur Radio as a hobby.
Welcome to the KCRC Monthly Technical Net!
We sponsor an informal Technical Question & Answer Net on the second Wednesday of each month at 9PM on the KC2RC Repeater, 146.730 MHz output, 146.130 MHz input with an 88.5Hz PL tone. Everyone, please come. Ask a question, or answer one, or just come to show moral support. No question is a dumb question, and we may not know the answer to your particular question, but we will try, and we’ll be honest if/when we don’t have a clue! Roy AC2GS will be your pilot, and Milen N2NYU your copilot on this journey of discovery of the unknown. If you have any ideas for other kinds of Club Nets, let us know!
The future of such club Nets is, in the end, up to you…
