SSB or Ham radio
I didn't open Gordon's link, so i don't know if it is on that list, but Jim participates almost every day on the "Comedy Net", run by and for cruising yachties on the east coast of Oz and their land based friends. It begins at 2040Zulu time on 7.087 K every day of the year, propagation permitting.
One of the members is a 6 on 6 months off chap who is cruising Chile
, another are a couple who sailed Oz to Alaska
and return a few years back.
There's a CFer from Adelaide now working on his ham license
, and I expect he'll join us soon.
You would be most welcome to join us if you have a ham license
. Note that this is a ham radio
net, which is SSB, but it is not a Marine
SSB net, and for it, a ham radio license is needed. The Marine SSB's are different radios.
