Great Lakes Marine Mobile Net (HF SSB)

Hi All,

Great Lakes Marine/Maritime Mobile Net.
Frequencies/Times: 08:00 EST and 21:00 EST: 3.930 Mhz first, and then 7.263 Mhz LSB.
We also monitor WA9ORC 2M Chicagoland repeater on 146.760 (PL 107.2). One of the antennas is on top of the AON Building.
We also have Skype for worldwide HF phone patches and Echolink for full coverage 2M comms. In addition we are fully conversant with WINMOR HF email, and can enter position reports into the Winlink 2000 system.

The Great Lakes Marine Mobile Net was established to provide mariners on the Great Lakes with yet another means of casual communications to land.

During recent offshore and cross lake sailing races, we found that not even VHF or boosted 3G could span the communications distance to land from the middle of these lakes. Some remote coves are also out of VHF and cell phone range.

Our free and voluntary HF service will close the gap for those mariners with a Ham Radio license. These services include weather information, marina information, position reporting, phone patches, email forwarding, medical services and emergency response.

Remember: In an EMERGENCY, no license is required to transmit on the Ham Radio frequencies.

The GLMMNet now also has the ability to receive general check ins from stations on Echolink and Skype during HF net sesssions.

This gives Technician Class licensees and those without licenses the opportunity to also join in the boating fun !

Re: Great Lakes Marine Mobile Net (HF SSB)

Non-hams can connect to us now via Skype VOIP audio.
Use the Skype APP for smart phones or Skype on your computer.
3g/4G Range on the Lakes is about 3-5 miles by testing.

Connect to KC9SGV Great Lakes Marine Mobile Net during the net.

Net times/freq is 08:30 am Eastern on 7.268 MHz LSB
